“The guitar here does not just fulfill its parties, it sings, flies under the clouds and breaks the hearts of those who hear it once. All this, together with vocal parties and the rhythm, Indie Rock creates an unforgettable effect of immersion. Gorgeous style. Bravo! (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Гитара здесь не просто исполняет свои партии, она поёт, летает под облаками и разрывает сердца тех, кто услышит её однажды. Всё это в совокупности с вокальными партиями и ритмом Indie Rock создаёт незабываемый эффект погружения. Шикарная стилистика. Браво!”

Out now Monalia's new single "Time to Start a Riot", a protest song wrapped in sweet harmonies with clear references to California's late '60s, both in sound and thematics.

Put all excuses aside, Monalia's new single "Time to Start a Riot" is a direct call to action. To rebellion. Because the song is about standing up for what you believe in and daring to demand change, despite your own fears and doubts. Whether it is on a personal level or in a larger societal context.

“There are plenty of things in today's society that we can feel annoyed about. But getting annoyed rarely makes any difference – action is the only thing that creates change, and today is as good as any day to start a riot”, says singer Stine Helén Tunstrøm.

The song has an unapologetic and confrontational theme wrapped in beautiful harmonies – a flirtation with contrasts that has become a kind of signature. It's melancholy and dreamy, just the way we know Monalia, but this time their so called mountain surf has gotten a warm breeze from California. It all ends with a psychedelic outro of despairing slide guitar and a long vocal delay.

Time to Start a Riot is the first Monalia song where the band has done everything themselves from start to finish, produced and mixed by guitarist Svein Petter Nilssen.

“I thought that the biggest challenge of doing everything "in-house" and wearing two hats, would be to get to the finish line without the band dissolving. But the process turned out to gosurprisingly well”, says Svein Petter Nilssen.
