Toronto synth pop trio Monarch makes their debut with their yacht ready summer cruiser In My Blood.

The group, comprised of guitarist Ryan Farley (Oscar Tango), Percussionist Greg Harrison (Taktus) & singer Maya Killtron came together in early 2015 and started writing & jamming for fun. "We all come from different backgrounds, rock, classical, R&B but all shared a love for a particular era of 80's synth pop/rock. It just made sense to join forces and make music we love folding in all our own strengths."

In My Blood is the perfect warm weather operator. It's shimmering synths & guitars paint a perfect homage to the early 80's golden era of synth pop while more unusual elements like classical percussion and 90's era vocal harmonies give it a new twist. The lyrics whisk you into a new world but the beat keeps your crisp new Sperry's dancing on deck.
