Monotronic have released their new single “In Your Head”.
“This song is about drama in relationships that can result from misunderstandings or miscommunication,” explains bandleader, Ramsey Elkholy. “Written mainly from the male perspective, it highlights the feelings of loss and emptiness that occur when situations have spiraled out of control and communication breaks down (‘never thought this thing you done would go so far’).”
“In Your Head” is the latest single from Monotronic’s
self-titled album, due out 9/27. The 7-track collection was recorded live at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn, mixed by
Grammy Award-winning mix engineer, Dave Pensado,and mastered by
Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer, Greg Calbi (Tame Impala, David
Bowie, Talking Heads, The National), at Sterling Sound. “Our goal was to try to
distill our more exploratory and improvisational live sound into something more
accessible to mainstream listeners, who are typically streaming 3-4 minute
tracks,” elaborates Elkholy. “With the help of Pensado and Calbi, the final
product exceeded all our expectations.” For more information on Monotronic,
