Monkoora is the musical moniker for producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer Julie Fern Crawford. Her new six-track EP (seven including a radio edit of lead single Bocx Wurld), was released last week via Glasgow-based artist management agency and record label Hot Gem.
The single has picked up radio support, while last year’s mini-LP Pale Slopes is on the eligibles list for Scottish Album of the Year award. Monkoora creates bubble-gum electronic pop music, but with meaty lyrics exploring sexual politics and philosophy. We recommend seeing Monkoora live as part of Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival on 3 June.
