Mrs. X: “Monday Sunshine” – a multifaceted all-embracing concoction
“Monday Sunshine”, a 3-track single by Mrs. X, is now available for downloading and streaming on all major digital stores. The track is the next single by singer-songwriter Mrs. X to be released by PR Delft Music! and iMusician Digital as part of the “Pop à la carte” project. The song finds Mrs. X again working with London-based sound guru, Sefi Carmel, who has already worked on her previous smash singles “80 Miles Away” and “He Plays Rock and Roll”. Sefi is well-known for having worked with megastars the likes of B.B. King, David Bowie, Birdy and others. Also along for the ride, on the brand new, uplifting and good vibes single is none other than M. Dwizzy, who adds his usual dash of spice to the rap interludes.
Joining him on the recording are two fresh new talents, unique rap performer YYZ out of Canada with his energetic voice, and producer/ DJ from Sao Paulo, Brazil, who’s best known by his palindromic stage name KZNZK. They all form part of the over 40 musicians collaborating with Mrs. X.
Considering the significant team behind the project, any serious music lover will have already acknowledged the fact that the word ‘quality’ already forms part of the song description before you even press play on “Monday Sunshine” for the first time.
The rest is taken care of by the extraordinary performing capabilities of Mrs. X herself, who says: “’Monday Sunshine’ is a happy song, a feel good song, a wellness song. You never know where inner-peace will come from, usually it is the small things in life, little miracles that happen around us all the time, if we slow down and take the time to notice. It can be as simple as a ray of sunshine”.
If for some reason you have never heard of Mrs. X up until now, this track is a stunning introduction to a sparking musical personality who crosses genres and musical eras. The recording sounds like a multifaceted all-embracing concoction that mixes cutting-edge electronica with the brilliant melodic-pop flavors of mega hit-makers ABBA and the chic dancefloor grooves of Madonna, and it works big time.
Plus Mrs. X has her own very distinct voice and persona. Drop in the urban essence brought to the table by the dashes of rap, and it will be hard to not trade your Monday blues for “Monday Sunshine”. The lyrics are uplifting and exhilarating, in the wake of weekend heartache. There can be no better way to kick off any week, with a fresh new start as invigoratingly expressed as this.
Mrs. X is following her own rules and ambitiously paints a musical picture and standard of performance and recording only major label stars are able to pull off. Bottom Line: this is a cross-over record that can and probably will appeal to fans of all kinds of popular music regardless of genre.
Whether this song is played in the club, in your car, or on the radio, makes no difference whatsoever to the impact it will have on you – “Monday Sunshine” will always fit the bill perfectly. This track is yet another sincere and honest piece of work by Mrs. X. and her performing and production crew. Maintaining consistency, the production is of tasteful, clean quality, never skimping on emotion and fun.
MORE ABOUT MRS. X: Mrs. X created her signature style “pop á la carte” in 2012. Drawing inspiration from her family’s background across multiple continents, she describes pop á la carte as pop mixed with a strong guitar riffs, with a touch of rock and then seasoned with a slight Caribbean influence, and after years of experimenting and perfecting, she has transformed her new style into a gourmet musical menu.
Just as she draws inspiration from around the world, she knows no boundaries when choosing her musicians. She loves to collaborate with musicians from all over the world and has worked with producers like Yashar Bakhish from Baku and Carlos Perón, best known as the grounder for the Swiss band Yello. In her current team are professionals from UK, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Jamaica, USA, Brazil and Azerbaijan.
When she first felt inspired to begin recording music, she turned to “The Circus Princess,” an operetta by Emmerich Kalman. In a world dominated by celebrity, the talented acrobat Mr. X shuns personal fame for love of his act. After donning a black mask one day, he begins wearing the mask during all of his performances to hide his identity, and he never reveals his name or personal history. With his origins safe from the public, he is free to pursue his art. Just like her fictional inspiration, Mrs. X finds the mask and her secrecy a key to her artistic liberation.
