MONOSOUL was started in the winter of 2012 when Anas Hajjar wanted to start a Post-Rock project. In his room and with little facilities, he composed and developed a structure for two tracks that contained elements from Post-Rock, Progressive Rock and Electronica. Soon he realized a need for a new blood in the project. Anas met by coincidence Obay Sha'arni and found out that they share a common taste in music and ideas, so together they worked to develope their tunes with the influence that Obay brought to make their debut 4-track EP.
The band blends the the influence of contemporary Post-rock that contained rhythmic instrumental texture, with melodic bass lines, synthetic sounds and famous quotations for vocals. MONOSOUL is now a distant band due to Anas has moved to Abu Dhabi, UAE and Obay still resides in Damascus, Syria.
