Scaling new heights with unwavering determination, Monta – a name signifying the pursuit of ascension – remains resilient amid the flux of lineup changes and ever-changing scenes. Conceived by the visionary Moore siblings, Dedric and Delaney, the Kansas City-based synthpop collective embarks on a sonic odyssey. Delving into the depths of psychedelic realms, the ensemble navigates through enchanting melodies and infectious pop hooks, all while embracing the creative synergies of their fellow collaborators and friends.
In various ephemeral incarnations, “Apples Of the Sun” has embodied diverse forms: a melodic expression, a Ray Bradbury literary creation, and now, a riveting new psychedelic-tinged track by Monta. The song delves into humanity’s hubris, examining our relentless pursuit of godlike stature. It captures the collective self-aggrandizement that drives us to prove our greatness, rivaling the myths and legends of yore.
By daring to touch the sun, we assert our invincibility and immortalize ourselves as contemporary legends. Indeed, we are living in exhilarating times, as we transcend the boundaries of our perceived limitations and boldly venture towards the cosmos.
Listen below, and offer an apple to the sun god Apollo:
