The last year has been key for Mon Franko, a singer-songwriter from Guadalajara, who after premiere of his most recent song “Come and tell me”, shares the personal and sound transformation that he will have as a result of this project, which is the initial track of what will be his next studio production.
Mon Franko explains that faced with the confinement due to the pandemic, he chose to rethink his musical project and although he does not detach himself from the electronic bases that he forged in his solo career and the learning he had under the umbrella of Belanova, he points out that this new stage in his life comes a proposal more focused on pop where he explores without limiting his most optimistic and hopeful side quite empowering.
“For me, in the music aspect it was a moment to completely reinvent myself, I stopped and thought what I was doing with my career, how I am doing it and how I can improve it, what new things I would like to try. For me, the pandemic was that, reorganizing everything, changing priorities, starting to prepare in other ways ”.
Mon Franko recalls that this process led her to increase her studies in piano and music theory, in addition to returning little by little to composition to cope with the confinement and thus completely land the vision that would provide her music.
“’Come and tell me’ is a song I wrote a long time ago. I really like the story behind that song, because it is a somewhat strong personal process for me, I came from writing with other artists like Belanova, with whom I wrote many songs, but ‘Come and tell me’ I wrote it at home , I looked for the producer, I planned the video, the concept, absolutely everything, It was very strong for me to launch into the world a song that came only from me ”.
Trusting in her intuition and in the perfectionist sense that accompanies her in her creative process, Mon Franko emphasizes that ‘Come and tell me’ is by far a significant song not only with the pop concept that it shares, but also because of the emotional and personal background that is reflected in your handwriting.
“It was a process of much learning, especially for my future songs, because I feel that now, after all this road traveled, there is much more experience in me, I think I am in a more mature stage of my life. ‘Come and tell me’ is that chapter that closes the naive stage of Mon Franko and now something else is coming, more music ”, he concludes.
