Released on 9th December 2019, ‘Sunday Sun’ is the divine latest single by Toronto based musician, Michelle Mondesir.
The single opens to an intriguing percussive beat. A new syncopated beat soon drops, and Mondesir’s dreamy vocals appear. They have been mixed cleanly and are concise in their delivery, letting the listener devour the intoxicating lyrics and melodies. We loved the duelling vocals at the end; they are impactful. The instrumentation evolves with the song and pulls back towards the end, giving texture and depth to the piece.
Michelle Mondesir’s sound has been described as a cross between Alicia Keys and Erykah Badu. We can certainly understand these comparisons but make no mistake, Michelle Mondesir makes music that is unmistakably her own.
Mondesir says, “Sunday Sun is the warmth of the light of the sun on your face that lets you know that even during moments of self-contemplation and self-doubt, all will turn out for the best.”
‘Sunday Sun’ was recorded at Poetic Groove Productions in Brampton and mixed by Michelle Mondesir herself. Impressively, ‘Sunday Sun’ is the 17th release of 2019 by Michelle Mondesir. We will be checking out her back catalogue this week and can not wait to hear her previous releases.
Mondesir’s debut album ‘Ready4UrLuv’, was released in February 2011. The album awarded Mondesir Best R&B/Soul Female Artist at the Toronto Exclusive Magazine Awards, and a nomination for Best Urban Artist at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Upon hearing ‘Sunday Sun’, we can see why!
Michelle is now turning her attention to the release of her third album which is due for release in 2020. Make sure you check out this talented artist today, you will not be disappointed!
