The five-person band who go by the moniker Mungbean struck a nerve with their brand of electronic influenced pop/rock music. Their latest output is a dreamy, nostalgia-inducing record titled "Changes"
The Columbus, Ohio quintet deliver a poignant message on their new record. Heavy synths layered with heavy guitars and dreamy arps create a delightful texture. Over this, the lead singer questions the choices of a somewhat deceitful individual. Delivering her message in a laid back, but emotionally laden style. Her voice blends in with the engulfing backdrop, giving a sense of both nostalgia and remorse. In addition, the arrangement is quite interesting. The quintet weave from pop elements to soft rock vibes and a tiny tinge of hip-hop on this one. But, don't let us get carried away by the ethereal background and focus on the morals here, it's all about finding balance and security in ourselves.
