almost monday

After countless garage jams, D.I.Y. gigs in the back of a surf shop, and innumerable hours writing together, ?almost monday?, first emerging in 2020, has racked up more than 140 million overall streams, uplifting audiences everywhere in the process. Originally from San Diego, the trio—Dawson Daugherty (vocals),?Cole Clisby (guitar) and Luke Fabry (bass)—crafted their 2020 debut EP don’t say you’re ordinary with producers Mark Needham (The Killers, Fleetwood Mac) and Simon?Oscroft?(The Naked and Famous, DREAMERS). It ignited a string of buzzing anthems, beginning with “parking lot view” and “come on come on.” Meanwhile, the lead single “broken people,” and the Sofi Tukker remix, crystallized their sun-kissed style with a bold bass bounce and empowering refrain as it cracked the Top 20 at Alternative Radio. Along the way, they’ve attracted a growing fan base through a combination of danceable rhythms and uplifting hooks. In 2021, they set the stage for their second EP til the end of time with “live forever,” receiving praise from?Alternative Press, Forbes, People, GQ Australia, Earmilk, Flaunt, Ones To Watch, and more. The band followed it with single “cool enough," made their festival debut at Lollapalooza, BottleRock and Firefly, and graced stages with Kings of Leon, Dayglow, Walk The Moon and Joywave. almost ?monday continued to accelerate their momentum in 2022 with singles “sunburn” and “sun keeps on shining.” With a North and South American tour with The Driver Era, a slew of headline shows including a sold-out NY show at Mercury Lounge, along with festival performances at Governor’s Ball, WonderBus, and Innings Festival under their belt last year, almost monday remain the consummate purveyors of future-facing indie-pop. Their new single “only wanna dance” is out now.
