London six-piece, Mono Club released their debut album ‘Sky High and Submarine’ on LGM Records this past March 30TH 2018.
‘Sky High and Submarine’, recorded and self-produced in their London studio and then mixed by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers), is available digitally at all the usual major outlets.
Featuring a stunning set of ten songs, including the current single ‘Best Laid Plans’, the new album will more than confirm their early promise as one of the most exciting new bands around right now. Harmony filled psych pop at its very best, other highlights include the singles ‘Place Called Home’, ‘Memory Critical’ (a recent Lamacq Livener on BBC 6 Music and included on Spotify’s ‘Counter’ Playlist) and their debut ‘Sky High And Submarine’.
Formed just over two years ago after the breakup of Goldheart Assembly, the Mono Club line up of John Herbert, Dan Bell, Jake Bowser, Nicky Francis and Kyle Hall have recently recruited singer / musician Lyla Foy (Sub Pop / Rough Trade Records). They released the aforementioned debut single ‘Sky High And Submarine’ last year and it quickly became a big favorite of Steve Lamacq’s and was subsequently play listed on BBC 6 Music.
Mono Club, who recently played a ‘sold out’ show at The Water Rats in London in February, will announce more live dates in the very near future.
‘Sky High and Submarine’ by Mono Club has an easy to love sound, bright and bubbly with the classic “Brit-Pop” sound but not overdone, stale or any of the “all sounds the same” feeling you get from other young bands coming out of Europe. Mono Club connects dreamy scores with lyrics that touch you deeply as well as give you the feeling that today is not as bad as it may seem and tomorrow will always be a better day to be a part of. This album is divine and needs serious props in the indie and new music scenes.
