Milan Monk – ‘Bedroom Demos – Single’ (Premiere)
We’re extremely excited to give you first ears to the A & B side of ‘Bedroom Demos’, the debut single from Sydney-born and now East London-based producer and vocalist Milan Monk.
After finishing a music composition degree at Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Milan jumped on a plane to London with the goal of becoming a part of the thriving jazz and soul scene. Citing vocal influences such as Chet Baker and Sufjan Stevens, as well as electronic artists such as Flying Lotus, his sound is a refreshing blend of delicate vocals and dense electronic grooves.
The A side of the single ‘Had This’ sees Milan’s hypnotic vocals laced over a slow-mo beat, a dense throbbing bass, and layers of atmospheric keys. On the B side ‘With Pigment’ is a hazy summer affair with gorgeous flecks of guitar and wavering rhodes keys that’ll have you taking a fond stroll down memory lane.
Both sides of the single are beautifully stripped back and it’s a testament to Milan that he’s already established such a unique sound across a debut single.
With plans to start performing shows in London and immersing himself in the scene as much as possible, we’re sure this won’t be the last you hear of him either.
