Monica and The Explosion (est. 2005) is Swedish Monica Welander and her acoustic guitar, performing up-tempo songs in a punkish way about stuff in life with a twinkle in the eye.
Sometimes solo, sometimes with a band, but always with loads of energy and presence - whether it is live or recorded.
The sound has been described as ”jukebox punk” - acoustic rock ’n’ roll with attitude.
