Australian natives, Monks of Mellonwah, offer a unique fusion of rock, pop and electronic sounds, but what truly attracts me to "Afraid to Die" are those orchestral bursts. Strings. They take this song to the next level.  It's almost impossible for me not to picture a jazzy, artistic ballet interpreting the music through movement in the background. 

The indie-rock quartet is releasing new music on a continuous basis, chopping their full length album Turn the People into a trilogy of EPs. Afraid to Die, the title track off Part 2 of the series,  is scheduled for release on October 4th. The first installment,  Ghost Stories, was released June 29, and as for the third, we will have to anxiously await their next announcement.

Listen to "Afraid to Die" below and be sure to pick up a copy of the EP on October 4th.
