Mona

30 Sep

Mona are one of the hottest and most talked about bands around at the moment with the likes of Zane Lowe and Fearne f*&!ing Cotton singing their praises.

It’s not hard to understand why when you hear them. More often than not, a lot of bands are hyped up because they fit into a particular scene or genre rather than their potential to be real world beaters.

Mona sound like a band ready-made for stadiums and are one of the most ambitious sounding new bands I’ve heard in quite a while. You sense that they’ll not be satisfied until they knock Bono off his egotistical perch and they sound like a band with the hunger to do exactly that.

If you’re in the big smoke, they’re playing live tonight at Rough Trade East and again tomorrow at Koko.

If you can’t make it along, fret not, I’ve no doubt that before too long they’ll be everywhere. Hopefully though, they’ll avoiding writing a huge hit about fire and sex and the music world won’t turn on them for being bloated and boring.
