Multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer and performer from Berlin, Monolink, mixes genres into a hypnotic hybrid on his new single, ‘Swallow’. After releasing ‘Sirens’ late last year, this will be the second single off his debut album due in April. The single entangles house rhythms, electronic synths, organic basslines with his own haunting vocals, showcasing his astounding ability of music producing and songwriting.
‘Swallow’ tells of a painful encounter and the subsequent loss occurring in that place between dreams, thoughts and reality. The process is almost intuitive. “Sitting down and writing a song on a specific topic is foreign to me,” explains Monolink. “I want to be surprised by my lyrics, to find an idea that appeals to me and is not just coming from the logical part of my brain.”
Monolink has been making waves throughout Europe and the US with his first single ‘Sirens’, reaching #6 on Beatport Techno Charts, #4 on the iTunes Electronic Charts and #30 on Spotify Viral Charts in Germany. This has resulted in a prestigious slot on Coachella’s Do-LaB lineup for this year’s festival, in the lead up to his debut album ‘Amniotic’.
‘Swallow’ out now via Sweat It Out, along with the pre-order for ‘Amniotic’, Monolink’s debut album.
