A new monarchy is born
"A daring story"
Third tip for 2010, Monarchy are a mysterious London-based duo, with just a couple of tracks under their belt, but already making some waves around. And seriously, Gold In The Fire, in all its brilliance, is enough to see they're fire-hot. Almost-whispered voices (and a falsetto chorus), slow-burning beats, an overall ethereal atmosphere, and then those icy synths which I can never grow tired of.
