The sun is setting later, the days are getting longer, and we’re (very) slowly inching towards Springtime… but for those of you who just can’t wait, Monticolombi’s brand new track ‘In The Morning’ featuring Lucy De Bono will instantly transport you to a sunny morning.
Following the success of ‘Pavement’, which made it’s way on to BBC Introducing’s Track of the Week, Monticolombi graces us with ‘In The Morning’, a blissful track about the blurry-eyed, love-filled days of youth. Monticolombi lyrically glides over a laid back rhythm pleasantly paired with Lucy DeBono’s soothing vocals, producing a feelgood track that’s readily welcomed after a rocky start to 2021.
After fronting the soul and hip hop collective Soul Stretch Gang for the majority of his musical life, Monticolombi was catapulted into epic change when a rare viral infection lead to a sudden heart attack at age of 22. From this, the ethos of Monticolombi was born: to promote positive energy that brings light into hip-hop.
“Take your time, we’re going far”, true to his ethos, the lyrics of the track perfectly sum up Monticolombi’s down to earth charm as he inspires us to go at our own pace and appreciate the small things that bring us joy.
Premiering today with Noctis, Monticolombi’s third solo single ‘In The Morning’ is just the start of what’s sure to be a successful year for this independent artist. Save it to your playlist, pour yourself a cuppa, and get ready to become a morning person.
