Mono mono, danish electronic pop duo, Karoline Elsig and Jakob Franck have developed a distinct sound which simultaneously offers deep ambient tones, melodic saxophone notes complimented with smooth high range vocals.
The duo explore the dark side of the human mind within “You”, delving into both experiences but particularly emotions such as fear, loneliness and parting – topics which are often considered to be taboo. An overall, sonically engaging track which perfectly portrays the duo’s distinct style: glitchy beat- patterns, harmonic tones layered with high vocals. The lyrics are beautifully performed and complemented by the aesthetic of the accompanying video which was designed in collaboration with the creative film community 73 collective. Watch here
The video for “you” resulted in a visually engaging production, shot in croatia, which artistically captures the visual identity expressed by mono mono – two contrasting universes to portray a sense of loneliness and disconnect, using skype imagery and optimism through close range body footage.
In anticipation of their single and video release, the duo have organised an intimate launch party providing their fan base with an alterna-tive experience by incorporating the audience into their live performance. Held within Copenhagen’s VIU eyewear store, the event will include close-range images of participants nude body parts, similarly to the music video, projected throughout the space. Here, mono mono encourage their audience to strive for body positivity whilst outlining the vulnarability of raw human emotion and encouraging authenticity between them and their core fan base.
