Hip-hop/grime collective Monster Florence have released their new single ‘Picture Frame’ featuring Miles Kane on March 20th through Project Melody. The track has been described by Kane himself as a “Glam stomper.”
Speaking about the new single, Alex from Monster Florence explains, “‘Picture Frame’ was an accident waiting to happen. I came in with the idea for the song and chorus and did a demo with myself and Tom. The same day, we had Miles in for a writing session and asked him if he wanted to have a go at the chorus? He smashed it of course and that was that… we got the verses finished and tracked and the song was done.”
Miles Kane adds, “Basically when I heard the demo, to me it was the best song I had heard from the lads; killer mix of rap and Beatles vibe, it’s fresh and grabs you.”
Hailing from Colchester (Essex), the six-member music collective Monster Florence is a band that channels Hip-hop, Punk and UK Grime over hypnotic beats laced with raw lyrics and airtight delivery. Vocalists, Dream Mclean, Wallace Rice & Alex Osiris, have been collaborating since their teens making their mark on the Grime scene with DIY music videos and Tim Westwood cyphers.
Formed after linking with producers and musicians Tom Donovan, Cameron Morrell and Jonny Poole. What was meant to be a one-off festival performance turned into a full-time project due to the undeniable chemistry shared on and off-stage. The addition of in-house production and live instruments allowed them to develop their sound, honing in on an alternative style of hip-hop that is truly unique.
Since spontaneously stepping foot into the game they have pumped out Grimey, Punk-infused Hip-Hop over that past 3 years releasing two EPs, debut album Foul and six singles through their label imprint Gold Bar Records. They played Glastonbury 2019 and have performed and various other festivals as well as a US tour.
