Exclusive: Stream Young Monks' drenched-in-funk debut album, Swamp Creek

They're going on a big Aussie tour next month to celebrate.

It seems like only yesterday we first stumbled across Canberra outfit Young Monks, becoming very enamoured with their single Jarmin In The Dark way back in 2015. And now three bloody years later we're very excited to get back on board with the release of their much-anticipated debut album, Swamp Creek. And what a bloody epic journey into funk-fuelled psychedelia it is - a sprawling 22-track behemoth recorded amongst "redwood forests, farmland plains, stalactite caves, oceanic mists and glowworm valley", it's an adventure for the ages.

The group have sunk their heart and soul into this over the past few years, and you feel it across the entirety of the journey. So yeah, we're pretty jazzed about giving you a sneak peek a few days out from its official release this Friday via Bad Bad Records/UNIFIED Music Group). Strap yourself and take the ride below, pre-order it HERE, and catch 'em live at one of the tour dates listed down the bottom:
