Mona are featured in a mini YouTube documentary, where frontman Nick Brown talked how the band has faith in what they do, drummer Vince Gard being a very old soul, bassist Zach Lindsey being a human encyclopedia and guitarist Jordan Young being the baby and comic relief guy who wears his heart on his sleeve, and subscribing to loyalty within the band.
“I’ve said it before, I don’t lead followers, I lead leaders,” Brown said. “I get to be the mouthpiece of a band with four individuals that are very different, very, very intense and potent in their own ways. But we also have the same focus and same vision so it makes it special.”
