Monday Morning Taste is the stage name of the Italian, Belgian-based singer, producer and multi-instrument musicien Massimo Gurrieri. His music is influenced by indie-rock, indie-pop, alternative-rock and electro-pop and blends a clever dosage of melancholic vocals, intense melodies, electronic textures and acoustic instruments. His lyrics are filled with personal experiences, intimate impressions and perceptions.
His musical references broadly span through artists such as Broken Social Scene, TV on the Radio, Jon Hopkins, Christine and the Queens, Michael Brook, The Weeknd, The Shins, Bon Iver, U2, Radioheadl…
His debut EP "Googling Idiot" was released in late 2019 and features a collection of emotional, intimate, raw, yet catchy, genuine and striking songs.
Monday Morning Taste is currently working on his upcoming single "Let It Last" which contains stronger influences of synth-pop, electro-pop, indie pop and experimental pop. The song features call-and-response vocals, gently stacked in chorus, as well as mastery of pauses and hesitant space. In his native Italian, he mourns a difficult, yet dreamful adolescence surrounded by a warm, empathetic violin section.
