With an excellent mix of acoustic sensibilities as well as a strong theme in electronic pop, Monica Lionheart is a new, up and coming artist from New York. The new single, The Future, is a track solidly on the electronic side of her spectrum – an upbeat, pacy track with excellent production values and a nice line in an infectious chorus.
The melody, simple and repetitive throughout, allows the song to sit under your skin, while the layered electronic production makes for a big sound.
Alongside the single, Lionheart has also unleashed a remix of the song – put together by The Pinker Tones – which brings in a thumping four-on-the-floor bass drum and a quasi-disco sensibility. You can hear it now:
