Electronic pop singer-songwriter, Monica Lionheart, releases her new video for her single, “Run,” from her upcoming second solo album, Missed Connections. This album is the follow up to Lionheart’s successful Spanish/English album, Indian Summer, released on the Latin Alternative label, Nacional Records in 2012.
Recommended for fans of Goldfrapp, St. Vincent or Portishead, this Brooklyn-based Berklee alum brings a freshness to the electro-pop genre with her distinctive vocals that are both haunting and enchanting. The black and white video artistically portrays the song's underlying foreboding themes with stark contrasts of lightness and darkness.
Something's the matter, you're in a spell
I don't understand and baby you won't tell
Who can save you from this hell
When daddy's money ain't doin' well
Produced by Steve Wall (Pearl and the Beard) with Dan Molad (of Lucius) and Ryan Alfred (of Calexico), Missed Connections is set to release in early 2016. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music and New York University on scholarships, Lionheart was the frontwoman for a number of successful bands before going solo. As the lead singer and principal songwriter of the explosive NYC electro-rock band, Zigmat, Lionheart was praised for her vocal agility by Billboard, who called her “the band’s secret weapon.” With Lionheart at the helm, Zigmat landed the band licensing deals, including a national commercial starring Gisele Bundchen, and toured much of Europe, garnering features on national Spanish radio as well as in Vanity Fair and Blender. Following Zigmat, Lionheart later joined the band, Pacha Massive, on Nacional Records who toured frequently, sharing the stage with artists like Morcheeba, Taio Cruz, Ozomatli, Café Tacvba, Los Amigos Invisibles among many others.
