Monophona from Luxembourg City in Luxembourg is the dark-wave trio of Claudine Muno (Vocals / Guitar / Keys), Philippe Schirrer (Production) and Jorsch Kass (Drums).
Eerily enveloping the room in a cloak Monophona take over the senses with their dark presence and the only point of focus becomes the mesmeric sounds into which the mind gently merges. The trio finely balance instrumentation and electronics, with a haunting vocal that is rounded out by a beat which exudes a tribal hypnotism.
Whilst time may stand still as the brain coalesces with the sounds, the synapses are not lain to waste as the haunting out-put keeps the thought process alive with a steady feed of melancholic apparitions that take over the head.
The compositions are softly played forcing the listener to focus and it is this, alongside the moody textures that gives the audience the experience of a transcendental meditation.
Monophona have been able to bring polar opposite musical influences to form an out-fit which also has the experience to have developed strong self-belief and the musical abilities to turn that confidence into a sound that takes the listener along with them on a fascinating journey of discovery.
To add to the catalogue of material already available a new LP BlackOnBlack is scheduled for release on the 30th.
