Synthpop deluxe outfit Monarchy are putting away their vocoders and customized guitars after 11 years of party services and an impressive list of accomplishments – from touring the world, playing Coachella to collaborating with Dita Von Teese. As a final hurrah, they are releasing Syzygy, one more soundtrack to dance the night away. Stream ‘Syzygy’ here.
The album features ten infectious tracks; the bedazzling dance pop banger ‘Half A Song’, the electronic-pop gem ‘Just Give Me Your Love’, the disco-influenced ‘Glow Vision’, are some of the highlights of ‘Syzygy’, an album which confirm Monarchy as one of pop’s most exciting acts.
The album is filled with positivity and confidence, mixing French touch, disco and synth pop to perfection. It’s a fitting goodbye. Leaving the way they entered: with everything intact, precise, concise and with deft execution. They came, they rocked, they conquered.
