Cache Monet, pronounced “Cash Monayyy” is a lil’ bit gangsta and a whole lot of fabulous. Cache Monet is a cabaret-style piano-led pop that weaves in synths and orchestral melodies with power-beats that serve as a platter for sarcastic, self-referential poetry that doesn’t suck. They write about religion, feminism, skanks, dirty politics, and bad decisions.
Formed by friends with similar interests, the music of Cache Monet is actively written and produced by Redd Skyy and Booyah, aka Princess Tigerlily. Each are avid pianists and vocalists, and the transition to recording artists and producers was so natural and organic you can find it at Whole Foods. Booyah had perused the music scene of Kansas City with his previous band, The Abortionists, who had absolutely nothing to do with abortions. As he delved into a solo career, Redd titillated her way through the cabaret community, earning her place on the burlesque stage. In the fall of 2012, the two reunited. Like the perfect amount of glitter worn by a drag queen, Cache Monet made the magic happen.
In January 2013, CM debuted its first single, Adam’s Apple. AA is a parody of Skyfall by British singer/songwriter, Adele. Instead of portraying Eve as the harbinger of humanity’s destruction, the song explores her rather as the savior of mankind, giving humans the knowledge of good and evil and the ability of choice. Stark piano riffs give way to swelling strings and deep syncopation. Suspend whatever pre-conceived ideas you have about Eve, and let her tell you her side of the story. February marked the debut of Therapy, a love song that ends in the certain stalking and White Girl Wasted kicked off summer with a party and a bang. Fall 2013 will hopefully see the debut of CM’s first full-length album, so keep an eye to the internets!
Cache Monet is inspired by countless artists, including but certainly not limited to: Marina and the Diamonds, Adele, Regina Spektor, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Kate Nash, and The Dresden Dolls.
