Picture two long-time friends who have walked through the highs and lows of both of their lives and have come out on the other side to tell a streetwise tale and you’ve got London tag team, Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench. Lacing together their experimentally artistic styles to bring to life a peculiar visual representation of two offbeat visions that navigate from abstract discovery, the guys have released their latest single, “African James Bond”, which lyrically speaks of emotional patterns that have prevented an individual from moving into their full potential.
Rising in heights of ecstasy only to fall into the depths of distress, Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench lyrically depict the inner experience of a hollow shell masquerading around as their own personal hell. Exploring troubled times in a delicate way that reaches deep into the crevices of another’s fears, there is a mixture of Western influence and soul throughout “African James Bond” that clarifies the duo’s quality musicianship that cannot be categorized or pigeonholed into a singular genre. As emotionally powerful instrumentation compliments Rebel ACA’s low and sultry vocals, a groove-inspired element carves the tracks unique terrority and heightens the listener’s recognition of their sharp yet smooth songwriting style.
Deprogrammed and eager to examine life beyond a conditioned mind, Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench are a refreshing musical team that isn’t afraid to live, breathe and bleed. As catchers of wisdom and sculptures of spirit, the guys’ smooth flow and originality naturally unfolds and beckons attention. As they steadily collect off-the-wall influence and solidify their creative direction, the British Indie duo are an exciting pair to watch in 2018 as they continue to sprout a kaleidoscopic and bold world that is entirely their own.
