Dilettante Drop New Single “Monster”

“You’re a monster and I don’t forgive you,” was the sentiment Julia Wittmann of Dilettante shared when she sat at a bar and cried to her friends about the end of my relationship. The next day, the duo’s producer, Maks Milczarczyk, sent a voice memo with the lyrics to “Monster”, and from there they turned their feelings into art.

The finished project is loud, energetic, and soaring. We recorded the vocals for the album at a family cottage in the dead of winter. “I was excited to record ‘Monster’ but also nervous,’ Wittmann says. “For this particular tune, we waited until the sun had set, had a little bit of wine, and I asked myself to really go deep and give an emotional character performance. It was really cathartic.”
