“There’s a uniquely ethereal nature to ‘Your Moon,’ as if Monelise plucked the lyrics and melody from the stars themselves one evening”
— Brett Stewart, Independent Spotlight
Monelise is an artist in whose haunting compositions lush cinematic soundscapes are situated into 21st century tone poems. Her music blurs the boundaries between acoustic and electronic instrumentation; hauntological longing and euphoria. Inspired by Kate Bush, David Lynch, trip hop sampling and some of the classical “greats”, she makes the beautiful and the uncanny collide in a startling way.
Her singles ‘Your Moon’ and ‘The Flood’ received highly positive reviews from various music blogs and publications, as well as a feature in Topshop’s 2018 in-store campaign. She recently presented a visually and sonically striking live show with a full band at The Albany, Deptford. There’s an already exciting year to look forward to in 2019, with a new EP and a mini Mediterranean tour.
