The Mondegreens is a rock group based in Seattle, WA churning out introspective indie music. Injecting a healthy amount of pop influence and classic melodic sensibility for a refreshing take on guitar-driven rock, they feature pining lyrics and cutting turn of phrase. With an infectious, harmony-driven sound that combines the raw passion of Elliot Smith with the diverse soundscapes of Grizzly Bear, their sought-after live shows can “run from dusty, shambling Americana to bright and modern in a single set”. Before nestling into the Pacific Northwest in 2015, The Mondegreens spent three years forging solid bonds with audiences, playing shows that ranged the entire West Coast, and as far as Austin, TX; Denver, CO; Salt Lake City, UT; and Glacier, MT.
California valley natives, Jack Knight (guitar/vocals), Russell Rabut (guitar/vocals), and David Friedlander (bass/vocals), began collaborating in 2007, coming together around roots music, vocal harmony, and songwriting. Scotty Jenkins (percussion) was recruited prior to their 2015 tour to Austin’s SXSW, completing their current lineup. As at ease at an intimate house concert as they are on a festival stage, The Mondegreens continue to capture the attention of audiences of all ages and lifestyles.
