Language Arts Plays the Monarch Tavern

May 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Toronto’s colourfully creative art-pop artist Language Arts will be in Toronto to play the Monarch Tavern on Thursday, May 23rd. Back with her second single and video from upcoming album Lemon/Lime due out this fall, “Top of the Top” has been receiving both national and international attention.
The artist, who is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms after being hit by a drunk driver years ago, notes that the video “really captures how I feel physically. It’s a window into how I experience my brain injury. Post-concussion syndrome can really diminish my quality of life. Writing this song helped me get these unbearable feelings out of my system and into an expression”.

Akin to Beck, each record from Language Arts is a new departure from her previous releases: “Wonderkind” (2014) and “Able Island” (2015). The artist has created a polished sound that nods at New Wave to Vapourware; and Art-Pop to Dance Music. Fragments of Stereolab, Grizzly Bear, Ladytron and Psychedelic Furs can be found scattered throughout her upcoming album, Lemon/Lime.
