The new track wastes no time packing a punch, opening with rhythmic synths and deep, growling basslines. De Warren‘s ethereal vocal riff is carried on euphonious melodies, making for a sonic experience that is meant for late-night club energy. “Awakening” follows Monocule’s recent release “Ways To Heaven” with Jamis featuring composer/pianist Michael G. Moore. Earlier this year, Monocule also dropped his “Monocule Volume 2” EP, which has already amassed over 2.5M streams on Spotify.

Nicky Romero Returns With His Deep Progressive Side-Project Monocule and Releases Full “Monocule Volume 2” EP, Including Two Brand New Tracks

by

After teasing the world with “You Don’t Know” back in March, Nicky Romero, as Monocule, releases the full version of his anticipated “Monocule Volume 2” EP, which features two brand new tracks that represent his Monocule moniker’s signature dark sound masterfully. Following the groovy opening “Find You,” a progressive gem with dreamy vocals and undulating melodies, he switches gears with “Silence,” for which Monocule teamed up with Protocol‘s veteran DØBER and UK-based singer/songwriter Bertie Scott. It employs soulful, haunting vocals and melodic yet dark soundscapes with images of late-night drives and after-hour vibes. Closing out, we have the moody “You Don’t Know,” which ends the “Monocule Volume 2” EP. The release is a direct follow-up to “Monocule Volume 1” EP from 2020, and we hope Monocule will keep them coming.
