Monta – All These Goods Are Gone

The name Tobias Kuhn may not ring a bell. I don’t blame you. But let me tell you a little something about him. First, allow me to take you back to the early ‘90s of the last century. 1992 to be exact. That year, Tobias Kuhn was one of the founders of German pop band Miles. Despite releasing four albums, they didn’t achieve the success they should have. Listen to their single Perfect World (2000), and you’ll hear what I mean.

Next, he started his solo project Monta, which put out two critically acclaimed albums in the mid-‘00s. But he only became truly successful as a writer and producer for other artists. He worked with acts as diverse as Die Toten Hosen, Milky Chance, Netsky & Lost Frequencies, Alec Benjamin, The Living End, and Alice Merton. Oh, by the way, he’s currently working with The Kooks on their new album.

Hopefully, after all this name-dropping, you’re ready to listen to a new effort by Kuhn himself, under his Monta moniker. And the name-dropping isn’t over yet, for his new single is co-written by Jet singer Nic Cester. As you might expect, All These Goods Are Gone is a smart and well-produced pop song. It’s Monta’s first release in 13 years’ time, and deserves to become their first proper hit.
