Monoculture is a Dallas psych rock four-piece. What once started as aimless jams between founders and longtime friends Olan Mijana and Nick Leibold became something with a little more purpose when the two completed a four-track demo while living 300 miles apart. This demo was the catalyst to the two's completion of Monoculture’s full-length, debut album “Heavier Daze.”

Fast forward two years, and Monoculture have added to their original lineup in the form of Jason Trevino on bass and John Valentine on keys. Besides trekking across Texas, the quartet has built a solid home base in Dallas, with opening slots for psych legends The Brian Jonestown Massacre and up-and-coming national act Mild High Club, as well as the foundation of DFW's first psychedelic music festival, Paisley Maze.

 

 

Their newest tune “Absurd,” a direct follow-up to their debut album, has spun on local Dallas radio and received the acclaim of The Dallas Observer who placed it on its Best Songs of September 2016 list and Central Track who placed it on a Songs of the Week list.

Despite Heavier Daze’s release in only February 2016, Monoculture have already begun work on their sophomore album.
