Album Notes
Freedom is a song with a mystery in its soul: the nature of freedom itself and how we see it. Addressing the struggle we have with others and ourselves, the song raises questions on the themes of liberation and love. Are we asking to be embraced? Or held hostage? Do we choose freedom this time or discard it for something safe and imprisoning?

Monique’s musical technique continues to spark, startle, and, best of all, intrigue. As the single progresses, her vocals take on extra colour, reach, and energy, as well as a searching sense that is one of her signature qualities. Ominous drum beats provide a ritualistic pull as her chanting and emoting combine rock dramatics with torch song vulnerability. The chorus of ascending and descending repetitions of the word freedom might be suggesting that independence is a boundless necessity…or perhaps a drop into one’s personal abyss? Bringing a fine, rough glint to the mix, the metallic gauziness of the guitars creates a hybrid of folk rock and punk while the accompanying bass surge suggests the isolation and longing that puts freedom and abandonment in the same emotional territory.

As well as providing Monique with a new musical drama to explore and vocalize, Freedom features the participation and inspiration of Marc Meriläinen (guitar), Alisdair Jones (bass), Emma Campbell (vocals), and Michael Wojewoda (mixing/drums).
