GOLD 013: MONARCHY

Monarchy have been generating some serious buzz over the past few months, debuting a flurry of amazing tracks around the blogs and causing rampant speculation as to their true identities. Rumoured to be the same pop masterminds behind Milke and amazing tracks like "Love Get Out of My Way", they're finally ready to unleash their much-hyped debut single "Gold In The Fire" on limited edition 7" vinyl with us early next month. Coming off like the halfway point between the cosmic soul of Magistrates (R.I.P.) and an even more disco-centric Friendly Fires, "Gold In The Fire" slays on the A-side while "Black The Colour of My Heart" shines on the flipside with Timbaland-esque drum loops and the dramatic synth washes of Royksopp. Both "Gold" and "Black" have been kicking about for a minute now, but we've got them available below as a special Monarchy double drop to remind you what you may or may not have been missing out on.

MP3: "Gold In The Fire" - Monarchy
MP3: "Black The Colour of My Heart" - Monarchy

The single's out February 1st and comes sporting the bands signature cover artwork, and will be available as usual from the Neon Gold Shop in the US and at Puregroove for our international customers. Given the hype this lot have generated so far, we don't expect this one to stay on shelves long, so get a-steppin' friends.

haven't heard milke before but if I had it would have been my guess the whole time. they sound about the same it's just that monarchy has the falsetto, plus better songs according to me!

What was the first music you ever listened to?
The sound of our mother’s womb, pulsating in the darkness, keeping us warm and nourished. It’s been a struggle ever since.

are these any different from the demos that have been floating around?

"Black The Colour of My Heart" is an amazing song. I still can't help but think it would be a magnificent song for Sam Sparro every time that I listen. I am enamored by both of these singles though. Can't wait!
