"From Leith flatmates to bandmates, multi-instrumentalist Erez Yotam Bertrand and singer songwriter Iona Zawinski make up the two halves of Pocket Monica, a genre-bending duo pairing middle eastern instrumentals with heavy synths and punchy beats." (The List, 2022).
A heady mix of live instrumentation and electronic beat manipulation. We meld Middle-Eastern and Celtic influenced flute, harmonica and guitar with deep female vocals and dirty, filthy, stankin beats. We are very DIY but not your average indie band.
We started out busking on the Kirkgate, but folk just keep on asking us in out of the cold! Long may it continue. Check out our gigs section at the top of the page for upcoming shows.
