Album Review: Monark - Monark


On 4 August Monark held a launch party for their second album at the Barnyard Theatre in Rivonia to celebrated the release of their second album selftitled Monark. The launch was a huge success, with opening act Ryki getting the crowd pumped with all the favourites. Monark’s performance was nothing short of excellent, leaving the crowd in absolute awe. They performed songs from both their albums. They got the crowd jumping with all their hits, especially when lead singer, Eugene Coetzer, jumped on one of the audience tables and began singing even more passionately.

The album sees the band head in a new direction in terms of their sound and production. The album was produced by Eugene Coetzer and Ewald Janse van Rensburg, both of whom are members of the band.

The songs feature elements of a wide range of music choices so as to attract a bigger audience. The songs draw their inspiration from artists such as Drake, Coldplay and Michael Jackson, which makes for an album that has a wide range of styles with a good hook.

While all their songs are great, there are some songs that stand out from the rest including “Broken”, “Here’s to the fun” and “Lonely light”. The album also features Ryki on one of their songs, “Sake of Our Love”. The album is fun and upbeat and showcases a more honest side of the band.
