Last Monday Gerda Monroe released her debut single Understood, and now she is back on track with the associated music video.
Behind the alias hides a charming girl named Anna Mose. Recognizable by her characteristically long and beautiful red hair, she is ready to take on the music scenes with this new solo project.
Gerda Monroe and the single Understood is formed by Anna’s experiences in the Danish Music Award winning impro vocal ensemble IKI, mixed with inspirations of the pop sound back in the 80s, from where she was born.
The sound of this first release from the talented singer and songwriter has danceable summer vibes, and it clearly matches the view of the blue cloudless sky from where I am sitting. While dancing my way towards my sound system to turn the volume button up a nudge, I realize that this track is on its sixth replay, and only getting better and catchier every time it starts over. The energized and celebrating melodies wrapped around her calm and welcoming voice collaborates beautifully and creates a strong foundation for this new artist. It makes me curios for what she will present us the next time, but I will guess that I just have to wait and see, while dancing to understood of course.
Today is the big opening for the associated music video, and in my opinion, it visualizes the moods from the song just fine. A lot of hope, dreams and happiness, while Gerda Monroe almost floats down the streets of Copenhagen trying to be understood.
Keep an eye out for this one. This could easily be one of the biggest Danish hits this spring.
