Retro indie rock from Louisville, KY.

"You can draw favorable comparisons here to St. Vincent or Angel Olsen, playful beats with a new wave undercurrent that carry remarkable vocals. As an indicator for things to come, this promises to be a remarkable album." - Never Nervous

Stray Monroe
Drawing influences from bands like The Strokes, Oasis, and Twin Peaks, San Diego indie rockers, Stray Monroe, are a high energy outfit blending the boldness of Marilyn Monroe with a desire to push the boundaries of popular music.

Formed in August 2015, originally under the name “The Hype”, the group consists of Blake Imperl (frontman, guitar), Brett Kelly (bass), Adam Hakes (guitar), and Colin Croft (drums).

Stray Monroe has been described as, “Strokes meets Television” by 94/9 FMs Timothy Joseph and, “A punk band on one of their cheerier days”, by Michael Brummet of Impose Magazine. After over a year of writing and gigging, the group changed their name to Stray Monroe at the recommendation of San Diego radio legend, Michael Halloran. In December 2016, the group released their first single, “Broken Records”, followed by the debut EP, “The Stray Monroe Show” in March 2017. This was a period of firsts for the band, scoring their first TV appearance as well as their first radio play with their songs, “Muddy Soles” and “Take It Fake It”.

The band did not hesitate to follow up on the success of “The Stray Monroe Show” and began writing and recording new material in July 2017, in addition to signing with RockToc Management.

They released the single, “Happy Accidents”, in September 2017 which introduced a more mature sound and demonstrated their growth as musicians. This is set to be the first of a series of singles to be released in the following months.
