Monica and The Explosion is Monica Welander, a Swedish acoustic punk rock artist.

Since the release of her debut album in 2007 she has been touring all around the world, solo or with a band. The sound is best described as ”jukebox punk” - acoustic rock 'n'roll with attitude.

She released her latest album “Shut Up!” (Hands Up Music) in 2010. She is joined by bassist Paul Slack (ex-UK Subs) and drummer Rob Baylis (Dun 2 Def and The Destructors).

"Monica Welander has some serious attitude but is cool as hell too. Armed with an acoustic guitar that she pounds the hell out of, this is acoustic punk at its most fiery and personal... Welander pulls off the Joan Jett, 'I-don't-give-a-damn' sort of sassiness without any hint of contrivance..." - Big Cheese Magazine, Sep 2010
