You can catch TOKiMONSTA perform live in Milwaukee on July 14 at Site 1A.
As TOKiMONSTA, California producer Jennifer Lee‘s charted a fascinating career over the past seven years, and ‘Lune Rouge’ is her exhilarating next step. The third proper long-player from TOKiMONSTA is both a logical progression of her sound and a surprising left turn from an artist that rarely ceases to surprise. A smoky, patient, and altogether lovely collection, ‘Lune Rouge’ mixes modern sensibilities with old-school sounds to make for a heady brew of moonlit music.
TOKiMONSTA‘s sound has always kept one foot in the pop stratosphere, but ‘Lune Rouge’ finds her diving in with glee. Her effervescent beats serve as the perfect framework for these gorgeous songs: Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna weaves in and out of water-droplet tones and a stuttering chipmunk’d sample on lead single ‘Don’t Call Me’. “I’m super grateful to have created a song with Yuna,” Lee gushes. “I was a fan of hers for a while, so I have to shout out the world wide web for allowing two people on different continents the ability to create together. The message of the track is really more than unwanted phone calls, but the idea of people deciding to show up only when they need you.”
