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 313 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.” Last year saw band embarking on 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. 2023 saw no slowdown for the band, as they embarked on their own headline tour and reunited with The Driver Era for an epic summer show at the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. The live streak continues with recent festival performances at Have A Nice Trip in Seoul, Korea, Wonderstruck, WonderBus and the upcoming Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, NV.
Their latest single, "only wanna dance," is out now and has infiltrated playlists and airwaves worldwide, even catching the attention of the legendary Elton John, who featured it on his iconic Rocket Hour.
