- Vaporous synth-pop
The vintage synthesizers of Fribourg-based Muddy Monk, sometimes throbbing and cold, sometimes tropical and comforting, recall the flavour of the pleasures of yesteryears. The freshness of an unexpected glass of water in the stifling heat of a summer’s day. Between romantic poetry and '80s sound experiments - in French in the lyrics - Muddy Monk has fashioned his synthwave world like a great paradox, in which blue dreams mix with nocturnal anguish. Longue Ride is an electro-pop ode with the speed of a motorcycle grand prix, the only way to avoid routines and escape the darkness that lies ahead.
