When the artist releases a Pin Up Calendar to fundraise for a music video, you know she’s got an aesthetic in mind, and this video does not disappoint. Mel Monaco brings pure retro blues-pop fervour and passion to “Single Again”. Though the track is technically a breakup song, it fights the assumptions that come to mind when you hear that phrase. There is no room for melancholy in Mel Monaco’s life. This song is all fire, confidence, and power.
The video plays with colours: an envy-striking green and a passionate red bleed colour into the clip, which begins black and white. Mel Monaco’s voice seems to unfurl and unleash a raw power, perfectly embodying the spirit of the lyrics, of the video. It all comes together under the unity of vigour.
“Single Again” comes from Monaco’s latest album, These Are Just Suggestions. Another song from the record, “Cupid”, has already received music video treatment, and you can check that out here. To keep up with this Canadian songstress, check out her website, Facebook, and SoundCloud page.
