Mixed Up Generation is the brand-new debut of Capitaine Monaluise. Delivering a spell-blinding meld of rock, folk and soul, the artists district identity and ability to experiment with sounds marks her as a shining new voice in the UK music scene. With this in mind, The Fountain caught up with her to discuss the new single and her plans for the rest of the year.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Mixed-up Generation?

It’s been much more thriving than I genuinely thought it would be for a first single, as I didn’t expect that, for instance, a key-figure like Rodney Bingenheimer (Underground Garage) would include Mixed-up Generation on his weekly show. I feel so grateful for all the positive feedback, both from the press and the radio. 

TF: And can you sum up the track in a sentence? 

The new generations only need to look more at each other’s eyes in order to feel loved: tech is too cold for that. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?

I’m already focusing on the release of another single, A right, which should be out during this Autumn. I’m also working on a new repertoire, so that I can go back to playing live as soon as possible. 

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?

My favourite venue can only be Agua bar, in Palma de Mallorca, where I started playing live. Its open mics have something magical, as everyone gathers together like a family and sings along great songs. I’d really like to go back to Santosha, and try some cosy, new places like Espai Chocolat.
