Premiere: Monalia – “Drank the Rain”


Monalia are a band based out of Oslo, Norway, where they craft a moody and intriguing sound. Their latest album, So Much Better, released today, and features the striking track “Drank the Rain.” Lonesome guitar twangs and yearning vocals craft a haunting feel, escalating around 02:27 with increasing guitar twang, which shortly thereafter produces a strikingly beautiful guitar-led melody, drenched in a gorgeous sort of darkness. “Drank the Rain” is a powerful, convincing track that will draw many listeners to the rest of the album.

“Drank the Rain” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Serene Rainy Days.
