Close To Monday, the emerging electronic pop/rock duo, continues to showcase their versatile musical prowess. Moving beyond their pulsating four on the floor hits, they venture into the realm of dystopian, Blade Runner-esque tracks that captivate the mind in the most enchanting manner.
Their latest release, “First Class,” demonstrates their ability to explore a cinematic approach, drawing inspiration from the likes of New Order and Ladytron. The composition delves into the narrative of a man entangled in his relentless pursuit of ambition and material success. It paints a vivid picture of his transformation into a metaphorical monster, confined within the opulent embrace of first-class luxury aboard an airplane.
The music serves as a perfect accompaniment, featuring swirling melodies intricately woven with Ann’s mesmerizing vocals. Together, they transport the listener into a realm of mystery and intrigue. The lyrics unfold the story of a hero ensnared by his own aspirations, with complex and somewhat eerie synth arrangements amplifying the emotional twists and tragic dimensions of the character. Each note and melody becomes a poignant moment in the unfolding narrative, a deliberate and artful creation by Close to Monday.
With a promise to deliver a new single every month, Close To Monday ensures that their audience will be treated to a continuous stream of musical innovation throughout the year.
