after thousands of track submissions via e-mail, myspace and what not, i think i developed a certain ability of being able to tell if something could be any good just by the artist and track names and the overall appearance. so when i got 'gold in the fire' by monarchy in the mail today and checked their myspace, i already had a feeling i am going to post this. only good people can come up with a name like 'monarchy', fact.
as everyone obviously seems to believe that music bloggers love themselves some mystery and detective work, i was hardly given any information, so if i can trust their profile and artwork, monarchy is a duo from london. more importantly, their sound is carefully crafted electro-pop along the lines of junior boys or the golden filter and the singing sounds sensitive and heartfelt to me, definitely catchy as hell and the use of falsetto and vocoders make it perfect! out of all the mysterious debut songs in the past months, this is by far my favorite!
