Mona & Maria - My Sun

Facebookmonaogmaria.no

I meant to post about Mona & Maria last year when I discovered them with the 60's inspired "Babyflowers", a luscious, swooning string drenched track which will be perfect to soundtrack any bbq you are thinking of having over the elongated Easter Holidays (if the glorious UK weather holds for a bank holiday of course). A glorious, harmony led beauty influenced by the likes of The Mama's and Papa's with fantastic voices and shining, nostalgic dreams.

The reason for this post though is another track, "My Sun", the title track from the Norwegian duo's debut album (out now via Jansen Plateproduksjon), a track that (again) sounds like it could have been made at any time in the last fifty years, here more ethereal, psyche-folk that contrasts between light and shade, mellow vocals and dramatic, fuzzed-up guitars. Heavenly stuff.
