Mononoke - New Waves

What do we know about Liverpool based singer / songwriter Mononoke? For now, absolutely nothing; there’s just the music, just one song, but it’s a beautiful debut. Taking Alice in Wonderland as a metaphor for a relationship that’s gone wrong, Alice is a gorgeously faded blue ballad; probably not best listened to if you’re feeling a little bit alone, fragile and tender right now. There’s something about the lyric “you wear your party dress but there’s no party to attend,” that gets us every time we listen.

So let’s go underground with Mononoke. “Down the rabbit hole he left you alone, you call that love?” Oh. So sad. So lovely.
