Producer and singer-songwriter MONA introduces us to her unique style of experimental trip-hop on her newest single "Royal Water".
The self-produced song is an off-kilter, mind-bending piece of art that showcases her R&B and pop vocal style. The track is laced with alien-like effects, while her production style crafts a dark, cinematic backdrop surrounding her rousing vocal performance. The term"Royal Water" is not the usual and it presents something to grow on.
"Royal Water" is a part of MONA's three-track debut EP 'Au' which is the chemical symbol for gold. She also gives us some further insight into the EP "Gold has historically been a symbol for things that perfect and divine, but also for aging and wisdom. I have used the metaphor in two ways; to express the “golden” things that are fading but also where I am as a more mature and independent woman and how I process that change."
