Monarch — Stay (Kill Them With Colour Remix)
Last week the newly formed 4-piece MONARCH put out their debut single Stay, an impressive, darkly tinged indie-pop track, to overall excellent reception. Today, we're being treated to the first of two official remixes, courtesy of Toronto duo Kill Them With Colour. Before even hitting play, the pairing here had us anticipating greatness, and we can say with confidence we sure weren't let down. The guys have captured the original's atmospheric elements and elevated them to an entirely new level. The vocals slide effortlessly over a cinematic build, as an ebb and flow of soundscapes creates an entrancing interplay between shifting melodies. They've definitely outdone themselves with this one, and that's saying something considering what a productive 2014 they had, setting the tone for the caliber of production we can continue to look forward to from them this year.
Hear the KTWC remix in full now, and keep a lookout for another from Norway's Bearson soon.
