ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following the thematic thrust of the earlier singles, New Eyes adds its own rushing narrative to
the album's ongoing exploration of the journey from innocence into experience—in this case a
long, struggling moment where “where joy and pain peacefully unite.” In this fourth piece of the
evolving album's soundscaping portrait, we're given a glimpse of a world recently discovered
and seen with new emotional jeopardy and excitement. Pure love leads to pure pain—and
where pleasure is absolute, so is the accompanying suffering.
Rich with rhythm, entrancing flourishes, and ominous emotional signals, New Eyes is
Monique's riveting take on Krautrock. Like a dance of love ripping through a burning building,
the new single is ambient but aggressive, experimental yet traditional. Riding on a rhythm that
throbs, smacks, and strums all at the same time, New Eyes combines the pounding nocturnal
attack of Marianne Faithfull's time-honoured Broken English with the wide-eyed curiosity and
bravado of a contemporary Lene Lovich. As spidery hooks creep in, cloudy fuzztone dynamism
gathers and mushrooms, and Monique's searching vocals reach through the music, catching
shards of her soul, and ours too. This latest offering from Monique Barry takes the disco-punk
dynamic by the throat and hurls it into a dance club inferno.
As well as providing Monique with a new recorded drama to explore and inhabit, New Eyes
thrives and soars thanks to the participating artistry and inspiration of Marc Meriläinen (guitar),
Alisdair Jones (bass), and Michael Wojewoda (mixing/drums).
