L.A. duo Monogem today released its debut EP, a self-titled affair that gathers up the four singles they’ve released in the past year and a half along with a new track, “Silhouette.” The collaboration between singer-songwriter and onetime “American Idol” contestant Jen Hirsh and producer-songwriter Scott Smith, Monogem makes slinky, sharp disco-pop that recalls the dynamic divas of the â€™80s. “Silhouette” bumps on an elastic synth line as Hirsh beckons the listener closer, imagining a darkened corner of the dancefloor where the smell of perfume, and everything else, is intoxicating.
