Comparisons have been made between The New Relics and Pat Green, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and John Mellencamp. A band that delivers a fresh radio friendly sound with great stories and hooks that will have fans singing along. 'Monongalia' is more than a collection of songs, it's a collection of people and how their lives interact and intertwine together all within the mountains of Monongalia County, West Virginia. Each song represents a day in the life of someone from Monongalia and the thoughts and dreams that they have. Some songs describe the area and the people within it. The New Relics have spent many years touring and seeing where their travels take them. They always come back home to the people that love them. Sometimes a jeep, a dog, a secret swimming hole and your lover are all you need. That is Monongalia.
