Building into an absolute towering and aching crescendo, the Australian band Monde go for broke on their new track “Best At”. Sung as an invocation, passion straining the limits of a voice, “I won’t stop loving you / that’s what I’m best at” is an invitation to consider what we have that makes us make that commitment. Recalling bands like The National, The Antlers and, shit, U2 – Monde create a slow burn into an absolute bonfire of resolution and commitment. “Mondé searches for some kind of elation, whilst cementing himself as both a caricature and a stature of the ultimate in pop bravado and the arrogance of blind optimism”. Over the top, sure, but fuck it, what do we have to lose?
