Fleeting is the chilled new track from British bedroom pop artist Monmoi.
By Graeme Smith
He’s an artist we’ve featured before on the blog. Over the summer I ran the rule on his track New Breed. Fleeting cuts a more sombre figure than New Breed. Gone are the retro, low-key dance vibes, replaced by minimal instrumentals to back longing, introspective vocals. The minimalism really works, with the faintest changes in the arrangement creating an aural impact like ripples on still water.
Alongside the beautiful construction, the track is filled with poetic lyrics that really stuck with me. In the chorus Monmoi declares “you dream big when you’re losing” – it’s simple but thought-provoking.
