Mons Vi Delivers Political Messages through Shoegaze Tunes On Latest EP American C.R.E.A.M.// Worth It

44views

Shoegaze band Mons Vi’s latest EP American C.R.E.A.M.// Worth It is two tracks packed with kick back vibes just in time for a lazy Summer afternoon. The lead single from The EP titled “American C.R.E.A.M.” has a catchy pop tune and vocals on the hook that sound like the recording was done with a walkie-talkie that had a bad signal. The dissonant chords aid in delivering the political message embedded in the hook “take the car/ take the keys/ take my home address too/ my American cream.” On “Worth It” the Bob Dylanesque lyricism is abandoned, and listeners get a surferock kind of experience. These two tracks have a repeatable affect; you won’t be able to stop playing them.

Born and raised in the birthplace of Funk, and arguably the birthplace of Rock n’ Roll, music is in my veins. If names like Bootsy Collins, and the Ohio Players ring a bell, then you know where I come from. As a musician and poet myself, I have an appreciation for art that hasn’t been inundated by the agendas of major labels and networks. Recently I’ve been sharing music and connecting with artists via social media. Follow me on Instagram @mainstream_music_isgarbage.
