On previous singles ‘A Dream in Slow Motion’ and ‘Summer Lungs’, Mount Monda demonstrated they’re no strangers to exploring deeply personal experiences within their beautifully crafted songs. New single, ‘Death in a Retirement Home’, heads a notch deeper again. Introspectively focussed, the song examines the grief that comes with losing a parent.
In 2014, singer Matt Walters’ mother was diagnosed with a rare, neurodegenerative disease. “I was close with my mum. She was a bit of a hero within the family – she ran her own publishing business giving voice to first nations people – she was a genuine, beautiful force in the world,” he says.
