The New Monarques Record Is Gonna Soundtrack Your Summer

We've been waiting ages for the first full-length album from Monarques, and yay! It looks like it's just over the horizon. The good-time/soul/doo-wop/'50s/R&B party band from Portland makes the kind of rock 'n' roll that George and Lorraine McFly could have lovingly screwed to, with a fresh update and a bit of edge. Their album—Let's Make Love Come True—is scheduled to come out in July, which is perfect, because it's packed with summertime anthems.

TO WIT: The first single, "I Won't Cry," is an indelibly bopping, finger-snapping romp that makes both your heart and feet want to jump.

I Wont Cry by Monarques

Monarques is working up a Kickstarter to raise money for the vinyl pressing of the record, as they are completely self-releasing it. We'll let you know when you can get your hands on the physical LP; Let's Make Love Come True will also be available on Bandcamp starting July 10. Go over there to take another listen to "I Won't Cry" and another great new track, "It's All Over Now."
