NO MOTIVATION

"No Motivation" has been in the MONTE repertoire since the band's creation. The song was written by front woman, Caitlin Montclare in 2015. It has been on a journey through different projects and performances and finally found it's forever place in MONTE during the midst of a pandemic. The Video was filmed and edited by TJ Ferrari of Bolex Studios and directed and assistant edited by Caitlin Montclare. The video mirrors the lyrics by depicting scenes of the band flipping through mindless late night television, almost hypnotized by the news, commercials & reality TV. It’s a familiar image; cooped up indoors, being bombarded by the media or forced to buy goods in order to cope with quarantine.

GRRRL FIGHT

Grrrl Fight is a punch in the gut and a kick to the face. The song is reminiscent of a 90's Riot Grrrl anthem, combined with MONTE's own special twist of Pop and Metal vocal lines and guitar leads.  The heavy baselines, guitar riffs, and high voltage vocal power truly translate the raw energy of MONTE on this track and on the upcoming EP Inner Demons.
