MONOGEM – Gone

Monogem

Monogem

Powerful, womanly words in MONOGEM‘s new single, ‘Gone’.

“I wrote ‘Gone’ with all of my single ladies in mind,” says MONOGEM. “I wanted to give my girls something to sing to every asshole they’ve dated to easily say ‘BITCH! I’m out!.’ I really love the production on this track; it shimmers and sparkles in a way that gives it so much life and imagery.”

MONOGEM worked with Scott Smith (who produced MONOGEM’s debut EP) and also Peter Dyer, who plays keyboards live with MONOGEM — “having Peter’s energy on the song adds crazy dimension and I’m looking forward to the three of us making more music together.”

ASTR – It’s Over (Feat. Mick Jenkins)

ASTR

ASTR

Urban pop duo ASTR returns with ‘It’s Over’, featuring the vocals of Mick Jenkins.

‘It’s Over’ is an upbeat jam, but it is also about being drawn into a destructive relationship time and time again. This type of subversion is exhibited by the acceleration and deceleration of the track’s b.p.m. throughout, and we love the fact ‘It’s Over’ keeps us guessing on whether it really is over.

ASTR’s ‘Homecoming’ EP will be released in November.

Sounds like: Holychild, Carvaro, Outkast, Disclosure, Lights, Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding, Ulla Nova, The Naked and Famous, I BREAK HORSES, BANKS

Hurts – Lights

Hurts

Hurts

Hurts returns with the incredible video for ‘Lights’, the latest single taken from Hurts’ forthcoming album, ‘Surrender’ (out worldwide on 9 October).

Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Beyoncé), ‘Lights’ is a startling dose of modern, well crafted, disco pop.

The seven-minuted video by Dawn Shadforth (Kylie Minogue, Björk, Goldfrapp, Florence + the Machine, Primal Scream) follows two outsiders having a contemporary Saturday Night Fever moment together. That is until it all kicks off…but they don’t let a bit of fighting spoil their fun.

It is probably one of their best videos yet.

Pre-sale tickets for upcoming European tour available here.

Sounds like: Depeche Mode, Brandon Flowers, X&Y, Young Empires, Polyna, Kylie Minogue, Florence + the Machine,

Monogem – Wait and See

Monogem

Monogem

Monogem is LA-based singer/songwriter Jen Hirsch on the lead and Scott Smith heading up production.

Monogem has the cool swagger of ASTR, combined with the grace of July Child. What could be better?

Monogem’s third-ever released track is ‘Wait and See’; a glittering journey about waking up from a dream. The track is full of disco and electronic twists.

The music video is produced by ZALMAK and directed by Michael Guilfoil, follows an aged rocker as he navigates a character-filled landscape of contemporary nightlife and tries to reclaim some of the vibrance of his past.

We recommend listening to the other two tracks as well. You will not be disappointed.

Sounds like: ASTR, July Child, Mons Montis, Robyn, Lights, Chvrches
