Brooklyn trio Monogold will release their new album Good Heavens on 25 September, but in advance of that date they’ve put out a charming little single in the form of “Pink Lemonade”. A smart decision too, because the track’s breezy, carefree quality is perfectly timed for the summer, and many will enjoy its sweetly psychedelic tones. Like a bubblegum Animal Collective, to be honest.
“It’s about falling in love. Childhood and fake powdered lemonade in the summer,” says singer/guitarist Keith Kelly.
Bassist Michael Falotico adds, “‘Pink Lemonade’ was a song that I immediately knew would be great. Keith sometimes brings songs into rehearsal or the studio that don’t immediately resonate with me. I usually will get through that after a few minutes and it’s generally because I was probably struggling to figure out my own guitar or bass part. With ‘Pink Lemonade’, I heard my bassline immediately.”
