Moncrieff is a rising singer-songwriter from Ireland. Not too long ago, he released an appealing music video for his “Warm” single, directed and produced by Antoine Poulard.
Moncrieff – “Warm” visualizer
“I remember everything. The picnic in the park, how the rain played on the roof that night, and movies in the dark. I know you’re so afraid to sing, but baby, that’s my favorite sound. I love all these little things that make who you are. And I know that we’re so far apart, I see your face when I look to the stars. Oh, I’m so far from perfect, I get so insecure. But you pour holy water over all of my flaws and I’ll always be heartless ‘cause it’ll always be yours. On your coldest of nights, babe, I’ll be there keeping you warm.” – lyrics
‘Warm’ tells a heartwarming tale about an adventurous young guy who hopes the budding relationship he shares with his significant other will last forever. Apparently, he doesn’t want their song to end because it produces beautiful melodies. Later, he tells his companion, “I notice how your top lip shakes whenever you’re mad. I can tell just when that smile is fake, I know that’s when you’re sad.”
‘Warm’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with Hozier, Dermot Kennedy, and Lewis Capaldi fans. The likable tune possesses a spellbinding, no-frills arrangement flavored with commercial and contemporary pop elements. Furthermore, “Warm” is Moncrieff’s first-ever love song and his first release since signing to the German label, Energie Musik. Also, the song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on his upcoming EP, scheduled for release in Spring 2022.
“Nobody’s perfect. This song is about being that person, and that rare moment in life when you find that person that truly sees you for you, your imperfections, flaws, and scars as well as your good traits and loves you for them. It’s a really comforting and happy feeling to just know that all you have to do is be yourself.” – Moncrieff explained
Moncrieff certainly didn’t rush things; he’s been working on his songwriting skills for years. And now, he’s about to unleash a batch of songs that need “no bells and whistles,” as he puts it: “Warm” is condensed, crisp, straightforward pop that’s poignant and personal. A simple, heartfelt tune that immediately pricks listeners’ ears, even makes you want to sing along towards the end. A song about acceptance and dealing with another person’s faults. It feels soothing and warm indeed – like a sonic safety net of sorts. Not only just a love story but a story of youth and what is really important in life. The small things that we take for granted. Rainy nights and sunny days, and learning to appreciate sharing moments in our lives together.
Written and recorded with a deliberately small team of musician friends, “Warm” is the latest testament to Moncrieff’s incredible songwriting gift – a gift that has already brought him a great deal of attention in Ireland. Growing up in the countryside, he was into classic soul and R&B at 16 – in love with big, massive voiced icons like Otis Redding, Etta James, and Ray Charles. When his sister and, two years later, his older brother passed away, music became more and more important as an outlet, a way to deal with loss and the emotional turmoil. Later, Moncrieff moved to London to focus on music and his craft.
“As a young teenage boy, you just don’t really have the tools to express yourself, you can’t really put it in words. I now have the tools to create really personal, simple, and direct songs that don’t need to have any bells and whistles to tell the story. Music has always been a lens that I use to look at the world and to process my feelings.” – Moncrieff explained
Owing to his moniker as “some banker guy” who offered encouragement (and some beers) during an early phase of doubt, it didn’t take long until some of the biggest names took notice. A friend got him to sing backing vocals for Adele who was shooting a BBC performance. And soon after that, shortly after the release of his debut single, he learned that Sir Elton John had played the single on his show. Right before Avicii’s death, Moncrieff had already booked a flight to L.A., where he was supposed to work with the Swedish superstar producer.
