AlbumArtExchange.com user Jeff72 tipped me off about a new UK electronic duo that is generating a lot of attention by keeping their faces hidden. Their forthcoming self-titled debut album (right) is scheduled to be released in the UK on January 24, 2011.
The duo's single Love Get Out of My Way was released in the UK on August 30 and a promo video has been posted on YouTube. As with the album cover and the cover of the single, the duo's faces are not shown in the video. Instead, the video features characters wearing masks. This looks as if it is going to be an ongoing PR gimmick.
Those who choose to follow Monarchy's Facebook page by clicking the like button will receive a free download of another single called The Phoenix Alive. It is a 320 kbps high quality MP3 that is definitely worth downloading.
