Today is a day of giving thanks, and here at Neon Gold we've certainly had a lot to be thankful for over the past year. Most recently though it's been Monarchy, whose debut single we'll have the honor of releasing on Neon Gold next February. We've already blogged the brilliant A-side "Gold In The Fire", but in the spirit of Thanksgiving we've got the B-side to share with you as well. "Black The Colour of My Heart" is all dramatic Royksopp-esque synth washes and Timbaland-style drum loops that draw you in before exploding into one of the biggest pop choruses of the year. It's only the second offering we've heard out of the Monarchy camp, but it's yet another reason they're being tipped left and right for massive things in the year to come. And no, we still don't know who they are either.

I think they're Milke. Monarchy's myspace banner is even linked to Milke's website.

Dear Neon Gold,

I love this entire blog, but I'm starting to think that you hype every band you showcase a bit too much. When you use superlatives and phrases like "most epic pop anthem ever", you make my expectations unrealistically high. Now, don't get me wrong, I generally like the songs you post, and I know it's your job to promote these artists, but the hyperbole is frankly starting to seem kind of insincere.
