The new EP from Los Angeles duo Modern Monet is out now, featuring the track Hollywood, which exposes an elegant and effortless folk-pop duet between these two enigmatic co-leads. A simple backing track of acoustic guitar and piano carries the theme for this introspective and cathartic exploration of the way life and love can coexist together, in service of a union between two affectionate souls.

This sweet ballad fits right into the dream of ‘making it’, and the realization that so many make through the process of connecting with their own personal destiny: that the journey of existence is far more important than the destination. Hollywood, the latest from Modern Monet, is a heartfelt and effusive ode to the years that stretch between youthful ambition and the easy flow of adulthood: there are times when having someone to share the days with is simply everything.

You and I are made to die
With names put on stars in Hollywood

Modern Monet is a folk duo based in Los Angeles. This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
