I probably have an unhealthy obsession with the morbid and grim. Sometimes, I could watch crime dramas or reality shows for hours on end, and I find serial killers much intriguing. Not that I want to celebrate the horrible things they’ve done, quite the opposite, but the psychology and behaviorism involved is fascinating. What should be celebrated, however, is this new song from London’s Moncrieff. The soulful, bluesy crooner has teamed up with LA future bass/trap producer JUDGE on Serial Killer, a suspenseful smoldering future soul/R&B ballad. JUDGE’s dramatic production and Moncrieff’s incendiary voice come together to create a tensely charged effect. Serial Killer is a ball of electricity, ready to burst.

Like many of you, I was totally gutted when I found out about Dolores O’Riordan’s sudden passing. The Cranberries music, and that extraordinary voice, will live on forever in our hearts and memories. Many artists and bands we adore were much inspired and influenced by The Cranberries. As expected, many covers and tributes have begun to surface, and we’re truly digging this cover of Linger by soulful Londoner Moncrieff. It’s an understated and austere ode to the classic hit, a poignantly stripped down dirge dedicated to Dolores. Re-visit Moncrieff’s debut single Symptoms via our feature from a few months ago, here.

If you’re a fan of Tarantino’s vintage allure and dramatic absurdism, you’re going to love the new “neo-noir” video Moncrieff has shared for his debut single, Symptoms. The Londoner’s soulful and bluesy music certainly carries plenty of dusty yet vivid appeal, too. At the center of Symptoms is Moncrieff’s extraordinary voice, accompanied by the song’s unique blend of gritty blues and modern urban pop. Symptoms is like Hozier or Cobi, with a generous helping of incendiary R&B pop and an injection of Max Frost’s dashing bravado. Moncrieff explains: “Symptoms is essentially a song for people who’s only religion is for making bad decisions”. Montcrieff will play his first official live shows in New York and London this month, showcasing songs from his debut EP, set to follow in the coming months. Stream/download Symptoms, here.
