After establishing himself as a strong writer by working with artists such as Rihanna, Jeremih, and the Chainsmokers, Rook Monroe is now shifting his efforts to his own solo music on his debut single "Jolie." Monroe channels his past writing experiences and blends them into a psychedelic indie rock song produced by Trackside.

Rook Monroe's vocals are ethereal and dreamlike, which gives them a vintage aesthetic complemented by the retro cover art for the track. The hook of the song beginning with "I had finally gotten over her once. But you know there's no escaping the sun" is emotionally dejected and incredibly catchy. Rook Monroe's veteran songwriting comes through in both the melodies and the lyrics of the track. The repeated vocalizations and the repetition of the title "Jolie" are summery and upbeat even though they are a reflection of Monroe's lost love.

Rook Monroe's debut effortlessly creates a dynamic and psychedelic song that refuses to be boxed into a single category or genre. "Jolie" is seemingly fun and youthful, but the lyrics dive into a yearning for a lost love and a sobering reality. This dualism paired with catchy melodies, make "Jolie" a unique and strong introduction to the rising star.
