Cthulha is Monica Demarco from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Demarco has a fascination with the connection of physical movement and sound. Many of Cthulha’s performances have included her work as an aerial dancer and martial artist in addition to her work as a composer. Artistically Monica finds herself exploring the purpose and practice of human ritual and spirituality. Her music varies wildly from her experience as a virtuoso pianist with a love of barbarism and mysticism to her work in contemporary rock and experimental noise. Among the tools she uses are cello, bass, piano, vocals and a variety of electronics.
Matron Records is excited to release Cthulha’s forthcoming album, Always Who You Were, a collection of piano-driven, experimental songs that each reimagine Demarco’s personal experiences to tell stories of women transforming into new creatures, each transcending perceived reality. A music video from the record for the instrumental '“Your Bones or Your Bass” will be released later this year. The video, which was directed by Demarco, features her performing an aerial dance composition. The record will be released in February 2019.
