Today in 1952, Elizabeth Windsor became Queen Elizabeth II. After 65 years she is now the world’s oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain’s longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regnant and female head of state in world history.

Though it’s been a moment since we’ve heard from MONARCH, I’m sure you haven’t forgotten about this exciting new band whose members come from a bevy of other well known bands like OneRepublic and A Fine Frenzy. They return with satin luxuriant, rich sweeping synthpop on Betrayed By A Kiss. The flushed and muggy gem is a welcome dose of the late 80′s and 90′s while its velveteen splendor also evoke the likes of Great Good Fine OK and LANY, with a touch of RKCB. I, for one, need to cool down afterwards.
