Getting deep with Comic Pop Library



Monk Tamony – “Greatest Armies”
-There’s definitely something militaristic about the song “Greatest Armies.” The song is aggressive and satisfying in its aggression. “I don’t believe at all in fate or writing on the wall…” It’s definitely a far more existential song that it might feel at first. This is a brand of upbeat indie rock that is fascinating and will have you listening over and over - Ear To The Ground
