Monarchy. They occupied this little empty spot on Friday night between Cut Copy and Robyn, just a tent over in Gobi. I'd looked them up before Coachella, but the album I found turned out not to be them. As it turns out, they're a pop music DJ Duo from London who burned up Bestival. Orme and JP were psyched to see them, and that's a good sign, as Orme turned me on to one of my favorite bands post Bestival last year, Delphic.

Monarchy's set blew both [livejournal.com profile] djrottenrobbie and I away, and when we got back, Robbie, Dan and I found out that their album wasn't available in the US yet. Like Daft Punk, Monarchy play in masks and don't reveal who they really are. It's supposed to be about the music, not the rockstar.

Since Coachella, Robbie has been getting his hands on the remixes of every Monarchy song he could find, and all the remixes Monarchy did of other bands. Last week I got my hands on the UK release of their debut, self-titled album and I've fallen deeply, deeply in love.

My favorite song, Maybe I'm Crazy takes me right back to the Gobi tent at Coachella, going ape with the crowd, feeling like the song would play for ever, a glorious, euphoric feeling.

Another favorite of theres for me is their single, I Can't Let You Go. Here is the video from youtube. Judge for yourself.
