MONIKO – Rust & Fall

“In "Rust & Fall", elusive vocals and chilling electronic patterns are tied in the most artistic way. The result has an epic, strong touch and leaves a sense of inner affection. Elegant music, which worths our appreciation.”

Sometimes mistakes are the most beautiful things that happen in our life without us noticing.

‘Rust & Fall’, the entrancing debut single from Israeli artist MONIKO, is about those moments. Weaving a musical tapestry of chill electronica with a haunting vocal, the single is out now on all streaming platforms.

The release is accompanied by a striking music video showing MONIKO diving into the ocean, holding out a torch to light his path, as he sings “Secrets lie down, behind the sun, could you clear my name?”.

Of the release, MONIKO says: “Mistakes help us to realise what is meant to be, and that brings the most beautiful and precious moments to our lives.”

‘Rust & Fall’ is out now.
