Manchester’s Girlfriend have just released their latest single Monte Carlo.
Since their start in 2014, the band’s songs have channeled the muse of lead singer Amory, an individual painting himself in lyrics as a character in internal conflict; consumed by his own vanity and either maladjusted or hopelessly hedonistic. All these complex themes are delivered in palatable thrusts of pop decadence and light-hearted reflections. On the song themes Amory states “I found it interesting to juxtapose the dour moods and fatal flaws, with almost clichéd views on style and glamour. To dress the misery in something beautiful. The experiences of sexual frustration and amorous longing are portrayed with a graceful exterior.”
Monte Carlo is a fusion of poppy lyrics and danceable beats that will be stuck in your head hours after you stop listening.
