INDIE POP BAND
PREMIERES NEW SINGLE
“NO MATTER WHAT”
VIA ALL THINGS GO
SELF-TITLED DEBUT EP DUE OUT OCTOBER 21ST
October 17th, 2016 – LOS ANGELES, CA – Indie-pop band, Little Monarch, have released their brand new single, “No Matter What”, which is premiering exclusively today on All Things Go. Listen HERE. “‘No Matter What’ is a tune that crosses boundaries in hopes to meet everyone where they are,” explains the band’s keyboardist, Lanita Smith. “It promotes good vibes and screams to me that it’s here to inspire and help us all have a little more faith with our individual paths.”
“No Matter What” is taken from Little Monarch’s self-titled EP, which is due out Friday, October 21st. The EP will be the debut release from the trio, consisting of an LA native, a New York transplant and a Memphis import who, through a series of odd circumstances, ended up together to form the band. “We are all so excited for the release,” the band explains. “This EP is a great representation of our vibe as friends and musicians. Our band’s unique fusion of sound and strong harmonic backbone provides the framework for uplifting and anthemic lyrics and melodies.”
Singer/songwriter and music teacher Casey K, who also has a jazz album and publishing company among her credits, has been performing solo for years, but felt something was lacking. Ironically, Nick Setter, a Berklee College of Music grad who had interned at the school at which Casey taught, contacted her last year to write songs together. The pair became instant friends and writing partners. Then, somewhere in that process, the duo became a trio, after Casey saw another band one night at the House of Blues and became enamored with their keyboardist, Lanita Smith. The three have been churning out indie pop hit after hit ever since.
Before the formation of Little Monarch, K’s music was featured on TV networks including VH1, MTV, A&E and ESPN, and she co-wrote the title track to a new ‘E’ reality show, “Hollywood & Football“. In addition, Casey wrote and was featured on songs by Far East Movement, Parra For Cuva, Mandy “Grace” Capristo, Clyde Carson and more!
Smith also has an impressive musical track record, as the winner of the Guitar Center Singer Songwriter Contest, which led to performances on shows like Jimmy Kimmel and with artists such as Don Was, Colbie Caillat, James Gadsen and more!
“No Matter What” comes from Little Monarch’s forthcoming self-titled EP, slated for release on October 21st. For more information, please visit www.littlemonarch.com.
