MONTE shares their new single “T.D.T.T.M”
New single “T.D.T.T.M”
NYC based Punk Rock Band MONTE’s latest single “T.D.T.T.M” or “Too Depressed to Touch Myself” is a rampant, raw, and volcanic take on the sexual side effects that come with a breakup. The music video takes place in the MONTE Labs Operating Room as the opening shot closes in on singer and lead guitarist Caitlin Montclare strapped in on the operating table. She’s dressed in heart boxers with bones painted on her body and a big red nose that screams Operation. A nurse reading Playboy and a surgeon with kitchen tongs try to solve Montclare’s dilemma, but they just can’t seem to do it.
MONTE was formed by singer and lead guitarist, Caitlin Montclare in 2017, later adding drummer and audio engineer, Ismael Baiz, and bassist Meghan Rose to the official line- up. Since becoming MONTE, the band has released several singles, two EPs and performed more than 50 shows throughout the United States, including renowned New York venues such as “The Knitting Factory” and “The Bowery Electric”.
MONTE is influenced by a lot of bands from the late 80’s and early 90’s such as punk bands The Lunachicks, NOFX, Bad Religion, The Offspring and metal bands like Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Plasmatics. Montclare takes an old school sound and puts her own spin on it with the band adding interesting chord changes, riffs, and song structure. Drummer, Ismael Baiz likes to call this “The MONTE pocket”
