Original singer and founding member Charles Perales chose the band name as a collision of sounds and eras. The name was just as much a statement of influences: “Mono” paid homage to Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” production, which guitarist and fellow main songwriter Hunter Lea favored a modern representation of on most recordings. "In Vcf" completed the idea of broadcasting sounds through a Moog synthesizer, something Lea does regularly.
