Who is MONEYPHONE?
The Toronto-based duo MONEYPHONE stray to the left of field when its comes to the expected Toronto sound. With a unique blend of twangy indie guitars and alternative auto-tuned rap, their music doesn’t seem to fall into the indie genre or the rap genre, instead lying somewhere in the middle. For that reason they choose to label their music as pop, making music that isn’t held to genre tropes and instead crafts music that’s a collection of their inspirations and ideas in a format that can be understood by everyone. Taking inspiration from artists like MorMor and London O’Connor they seek to challenge the perception and boundaries of the pop genre.
The two MONEYPHONE members Enoch and David met in high school just north of Toronto, and later moved down into the city. While both pursuing music careers as individual artists they started working together. MONEYPHONE just came naturally after that and so far they have released two EP’s together: Athletes & Tolerance.
The duo released their new video for Eagle, which is the first video in a four part series labeled Assembly. The series is being made in collaboration with film production company NOSCHT and Studio Rat. Set in an empty industrial-looking building, the video paints an energetic picture of the duo with a carefree vibe during groups performance. Stay tuned to see what MONEYPHONE has in store for rest of the four part Assembly series.
