Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based songstress Monica Martin releases her debut solo single, Cruel. Packing a lo-fi punch, the track pairs dreamy production with a razor sharp narrative, recounting a love collapsing under its own weight. Produced by Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Sam Smith) the songs delicate delivery brims with soul and spirit.
“You can equip your lover with the truth, but they might still lie to themselves,” Monica says of “Cruel,” “there is a point where, if you know they aren’t going to manage their expectations as a grown ass person, you’re cruel to not call the incompatibility and leave…”
It also paves the way for the arrival of her forthcoming debut EP, dropping very soon.
