The EP ebbs and flows from hard 2000’s and 90’s style pop punk to Heavy Rock grooves, showing a wide and versatile range in their musical style while also staying true to their signature sound and tone. From the soaring guitar solos, catchy riffs, and 4 part harmonies to clever, whimsical, and dark lyrics, This is MONTE hits all the right spots.
The focus single, “T. D .T .T .M”, means “Too Depressed To Touch Myself.” Besides the obvious, being too depressed to touch yourself, the song is about not being able to go about life without thinking of someone from your romantic past. In pure MONTE fashion, singer and guitarist, Caitlin Montclare takes a bad experience and makes a danceable and catchy track.
This Is MONTE was produced by platinum record producer Barb Morrison, tracked by drummer Ismael Baiz at his studio Latin Experimental Records and tracked and mixed by Grammy Award nominated Jonathan Jetter, Jeremy Kinney & Matt Graff.
