Monarchy Set To Release A Collaboration With International Muse Dita von Teese

Oh WOWEE if the steam rising off this will allow, would you LOOK at this press shot! isn’t it rather scandalously sex-ay, in an “Eyes Wide Shut” kind of way!  and its all because……  Electro pop titans Monarchy will be opening up the New Year with an exciting venture.

The super hot electro maestros have scored themselves a super-fan in international muse Dita von Teese, friendship has blossomed betwixt all parties and they have conjured up a tune for the sensual siren called “Disintegration” that will make it’s way to digital outlets mid January 2013. 

In prelude to release of the track; Monarchy reveal that “the song is about losing the self in a moment, in a love affair, in a partner, drawing from a metaphor of “le Petit mort” that post sex moment where the mind goes blank, as a symbol of the larger loss of self in a relationship”.  Hmmmm quite the thought there! Anyway, we’re confident that it’ll be the stuff that electro dreams are made of with Monarchy at the steer of it.

Also the video is to see Dita portray the classic 1950’s housewife escaping the monotony of her marriage through sexual fantasy…. Allo, allo lightbulb!  haven’t synth slayers Parralox just had a similar story idea for their freshly released video to “Sharper Than A Knife”!  oh well, it’s a retro fantastic idea I’m sure both electro duo’s have seen that it’s turned out with both their usual stunning panache. 

We await with steamy baited breath for further Monarchy and Dita updates…….
