Though the band’s fourth full-length offering The World I Want To Leave Behind features a number of “firsts,” Moneen vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Kenny Bridges assures us that this isn’t a new band: “We weren’t trying to reinvent ourselves as much as we were trying out some things that we would have been scared of on previous records.”
One wouldn’t think a band that’s effortlessly able to weave such a wide array of influences into their output would be “scared” to try anything.
