After releasing their third studio album ‘Mid:Night’ last January, and wrapping up their European tour with a sold-out show in Madrid’s iconic Joy Eslava, Monarchy return with new single ‘Glow Vision’ via Warner, the first single taken from their new album, out next year.
Vision’ is a sleeping giant of a dance-floor
creeper that will be everyone’s favourite new electro single in no-time. While
existing fans are catered to generously, Monarchy have brought their sound on
in leaps and bounds; an achievement that is testament to their ever evolving
songwriting and production prowess. The duo are currently in the studio,
promising more new music in 2020.
Black: “Sometimes even the fullest seemingly
unshakable love can feel fragile and turbulent. This song is note to my
girlfriend to let her know that I may be a bit altered, a bit lost at the end
of the spirals of my mind but even there I can see what I’ve always known,
which is that we have a future and the future is bright.”
Armstrong:“I think this one really epitomises our
direction for the new album. Analogue synths and disco beats. It¹s retro, but
it’s also new, it has production tricks which are definitely from now, to mesh
with the retro synths and beats. I use my Jupiter 6 a lot, and then this one
has the Korg Minologue working as well.”
Over the years, Ra Black & Andrew Armstrong AKA MONARCHY have become one of pop music’s most exciting duos with their own unique brand of euphoric synth-pop. Throughout their career, the London-based band have garnered numerous accolades and achievements including 3 LPs (Around the Sun in 2011, Abnocto in 2015 & Mid:Night in 2019), racking up millions of streams worldwide, performing headline shows in Berlin, Madrid, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Seoul, Moscow (among many other places) and playing some of the biggest festivals around the globe including Coachella, Eurosonic, Lovebox, Pentaport, Mad Cool , Reading and Leeds.
