Rare Monk just released their debut full-length album, A Future. The first track, "Happy Haunting," is a catchy and romantic, yet morbid start to the release.
Many of the songs on the album deal with death and agency – it's about "control (both individually and as a species) of how the future will play out" – the band says.
They continue, “It’s easy to be deterministic – the world’s a shit show right now and it feels like all we can do is make popcorn – so there’s a lot of grappling and grasping for free will.”
But the cute and optimistic elements win out on this one, declaring: "And if were to die before you, I'm gonna haunt you forever with clever puns, yeah!"
