HOT MONARCHY consists of:
Hot Monarchy is a super reverby, semi-catchy, indescribably genre'd group of musicians with plenty of time to spend making music that sounds like it was recorded in a frozen aircraft hanger during The Rapture. Our band is like an onion, or a much more scrumptious bunt cake... with layer upon layer of moist deliciousness.
Abby Juarez - The icing that catches your senses the most and leaves you with a delicious taste in your mouth. It can be sweet and tingly, smooth and sultry, or thick and rich. It can even be a bit stinging and cynical. I don't know if there's any icing out there like that... And I don't think there's icing out there that can write lyrics and melodies as well as Abby, so she's winning on multiple fronts.
Brandon Byron - The yummy stuff in the middle. With this cake, someone decided to inject pudding into it. Many people will say, "Eww! Pudding cake?!" BUT, other people will say, "Mmmmmmh, Pudding cake!" Those people will be rewarded with his unique and wonderful vocal, lyrical, and instrumental contributions. All hail the pudding cake.
Neb Good - The bunt. The foundation and structure in all the pudding filled, icing topped madness. The horribly confused producer and principle song writer. He doesn't know how to make things sound good so he just puts tons of reverb on everything. But that's the kind of bunt that people should use more often. Bunts so large and in charge that you can hear a natural reverb resonating within. He is the de-facto leader cause he's the only one who knows how to work Ableton Live.
