Monopol – Somebody That I’ll Never Be

monopol

As the producer of G-Eazy‘s hit track “My, Myself & I” and a myriad of other projects, Christoph Andersson clearly has a knack for crisp production. This week he’s releasing his debut EP under his new solo project Monopol. The lead single from the EP “Somebody That I’ll Never Be” is an admirable electropop song that hooks you right from the opening synth spikes.

All the more admirable when you consider that it was written during a massive rainstorm in the middle of a jungle in Nicaragua, according to Andersson. Symptomatic of more than just a physical storm, “It’s a song about the desperation of trying to salvage a dying relationship,” he explains. Listen below and check out Monopol’s eponymous EP, out May 13.
