It begins with stuttering keyboard work. Then enter vocals that elicit comparisons to to Beirut. Finally, all segues into indie synthy bliss. This is Monarchy, a UK electro duo that made their first splash on the scene back in October of 2010. Their first full-length Around The Sun was released yesterday (available on iTunes).
The two composing the band are interesting in that they refuse to reveal their identify for fear of defining their music (perhaps that was apparent looking at the artwork for the song). Regardless, this is actually a hella catchy album. Maybe that's because we're not distracted by the band's personal lives? You can catch a few more songs by following this link.
