Monarchy, the London-based and Australian-born electronic/indie dance duo Andrew Armstrong [producer] and Ra Black [vox/lyrics] are back with their sophomore LP. Funded by a Pledge Music campaign, Abnocto is out now.
Abnocto was self-released on March 09, 2015 via Monarchy’s own label Hacan Sound. The album of twelve tracks is available as digital download (mp3/wav), CD and limited edition red 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy/order your copy of Abnocto in all versions directly from Monarchy’s Store. The digital album is also available to buy from iTunes.
A few days ago, the official video for new single Black Widow premiered via Noisey. Directed by Ross McElwain and Manos Ioannou, the clip stars Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese and was shot on location in L.A. (Von Teese segments) and London. The music video for previous single Dancing In The Corner is directed by Ch. Martínez – watch both clips above.
Falling In Love With A Memory is the latest track unveiled from the album, following last year’s single Living Without You – take a listen below.
