Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview No.147
Following the release of her debut solo EP ‘Lately’ we caught up with Melbourne artist Monnie to ask her the important questions like “what’s the last lie you told?”, “what’s your flavour?” & “is the Australian indie rock scene a boys club?”
‘Lately’ is the first body of work by Monnie as a solo artist, and features her single ‘Bored’, which is currently on high rotation on Triple J, as well as her debut track ‘Tell Me Something’ co-written with her close friend and former housemate Forest Claudette, and the incredibly catchy new single ‘Read No Reply’.
The EP is full of offbeat pop melodies, with clever wordplay exploring growing pains, relationship anxiety and more.
Today it is a pleasure to bring you Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview No.147 with Monnie.
