Monarchy - You Don’t Want to Dance With Me (feat. Britt Love)
Sleek, sultry, stylish - Monarchy's latest video is the perfect fit for its accompanying track. After the hip electro-pop duo hitched up with former Mini Viva girl Britt Love for Lovebox Festival earlier this year, they've combined forces again on You Don't Want To Dance With Me, and the results are rather special.
Clinical and clean in the precision of its hummed vocals and slow, methodic groove, the song taps with ease into a rich seam of funky groove. YDWTDWM is the post-club come-down, the soundtrack to that moment when the lights go down and the night slips away.
In the world of pop, matching style with substance has always been a tricky game, but here Monarchy have it spot on. And above all, it's just great to have new material from Britt - we saw her live at the Hoxton Pony a few months ago and her solo material is shaping up to be absolutely brilliant.
If you're liking what you're hearing, make sure you grab the free download of the Bondax Remix of the track here.
You Don't Want To Dance With Me is released on the 24th October.
