Today,Monroe shared a new song and announced their debut EP The Streetlight via Substream Magazine! CLICK HERE to listen to summery pop-rock anthem “Streetlight” and learn more about the EP, out July 28th.
“I wrote the chorus of this song while I was in LA touring with Brandon Flowers,” lead singer and saxophonist Matt Berman revealed. “When I started writing this record, I would stand outside of my apartment in New York and write lyrics under a streetlight out on 14th Street. While in LA, I looked outside of my hotel window and there was one just staring me in the face that weirdly looked just like the one from home; so I knew I had to finish this song. This song was a reality check in many ways, but really lays it all out on the line.”
Formed by singer/saxophonist MattBerman, Monroe unites a group of musicians with extensive touring backgrounds, including members who have played with Lauryn Hill and Augustana. Berman himself played saxophone and keys as part of Brandon Flowers’ (The Killers) band on his recent world tour and has worked in the studio with artists on Snoop Dogg and Kanye West’s labels.
Monroe recently opened for Ingrid Michaelson and made their live debut at Los Angeles’ Viper Room earlier this year, with more live shows coming soon!
