The electro-pop singer-songwriter, Monti recently released her debut EP entitled ‘This is for you‘.
Monti is the brainchild of Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Lauren Silva “Monti”.
Having built her career in entertainment at an early age.
Her music has been featured on major cable TV networks including Oxygen and HBO.
The four-track EP is produced and co-written by Josh Stevens (LMAFO, Calvin Harris).
Born into an abusive broken home filled with drugs and alcoholism.
Monti was a runaway who dodged foster care systems living off and on the streets, escaping a life of gangs, mental hospitals, group homes, drug and alcohol abuse.
Monti’s music empowers the next generation with thought provoking lyrics about overcoming a life of hardships.
The turbulent past of the singer is brilliantly conveyed in the two singles; ‘Cowards Castle’ and ‘Echo’.
‘Cowards Castle’ is a stunningly poignant pop song with haunting vocals, deep synths, and indie electronic beats.
It reflects on her own experience with a co-dependent relationship and the devastating effect it had on her.
Monti Confides :
“As the relationship kept getting more and more unbalanced I realized my partner had started to build a castle around his emotions, and wore his cowardly crown proudly as he allowed his fears to push me and love further and further away metaphorically speaking.”– Monti
Featuring powerful keys and soulful vocals, ‘Echo’ is an indie chant anthem of hope.
She takes the listener on a journey of self-discovery in discussing her own experiences of overcoming the adversity of a troubled youth.
The unique sound combines brooding electronics, heavy beats and bright guitars all brought together by her distinctive layered vocals.
We liked the variation in styles throughout the album that brought forth the artists distinct style of music.
The message she has tried to convey through her music, is something a lot people face nowadays and is something we really advocate for.
Her album is available to stream below!
