After hours of music browsing, and listening to hundreds of songs on numerous websites, sometimes songs and artists start to sound very similar. Every once in a while though, you play a track that catches your ears in a way that makes you stop and really listen. You start to remember why you were music searching in the first place, to find those songs that really get you groovin’. That is how we felt when we heard Monarchy, our next artist spotlight.
Monarchy is a synthpop duo based out of London, although the two members are both originally from Australia. Monarchy combines the amazing sounds of instruments with professional and unique producing skills to not only release some funky house songs, but also some amazing remixes from the likes of Jamiroquai, Lady Gaga, Kelis, and Ellie Goulding. Monarchy was formed in 2009, and in such a short amount of time, have risen to popularity among fans from many different genres.
In June 2010, they became the first band to ever broadcast a live performance into space during their concert in Cape Canaveral, Florida. After only performing live for about a year, Monarchy is sure to surprise many people during their Friday night set at Coachella 2011!
You can also catch another great Monarchy remix in our “Indie-o Playground” Coachella 2011 mix. If you want to suggest some new artists for us to check out, tweet us and your artist may become our next spotlight!
