Ra and Andrew better known to us as Monarchy, welcome in their sophomore album “Abnocto” by sharing a visual treatment of the quivering staged synth-pop track “Black Widow”.
First making an appearance on the “Almost Human” EP of last year, “Black Widow” throws back in a hauntingly eerie manner whilst further punctured with a distinct 80’s vibe insitu.
As with Monarchy’s 2013 single “Disintegration” the duo once again invite siren of burlesque Dita Von Teese to join them in collaboration, this time around though Dita appears only on screen cast in the leading role.
Starring as the Black Widow, Dita might well have an unscrupulous motive lurking behind luring Ra and Andrew into her adult web of burlesque. For us viewers though, since it’s been a while, it’s just nice to see Monarchy synthing-out and appearing in one of their own video’s once more.
