Their latest release – the single Lion which is packaged together with four remixes – showcases a band with the ability to combine a rock basement with a glittering funky tempo to deliver music that has the listener furiously strumming air guitar while stepping out in gold and silver brocaded white flares.

Unlike the band name the first song to appear from what is their début single (available on bandcamp), which is the title track and first of the three, Libra is not full of dramas – though it is most certainly dramatic in architecture.

There is a weightlessness to the vocal which counterbalances the more forceful pianoforte generating a song which entices the listener to cloak themselves in the dreamy spirals of unhurried synthesis which drift through the ears. The hypnotic vocal captivates the mind with its unassuming beauty as the piano forms a beguiling melancholia in a cohesion of elements which the audience merely wishes on its conclusion, almost four and a half minutes later, continued to linger longer.

The Austrian, England based, folk-beat duo MonaLisa Twins release the LP ORANGE on the 29th.

MonaLisa Twins

MonaLisa Twins

A dozen track album (available directly from their website) rooted firmly in ’60s psychedelic merseybeat MonaLisa Twins deliver a selection of songs that set flight intoxicating melodies which akin to sunlight refracting through hanging crystals dapple the room with kaleidoscopes of colours that relaxes the stresses of daily life as they drift through the mind.

The sixth track is Waiting For The Waiter which is a composition that features, with the guitars, blues-harmonica.

My apologies to one and all for the delay in getting to this as this email has been with me since early this month.
