Monika Debuts "Shake Your Hands" Single Off Upcoming 'Secret in the Dark' LP


On the heels of two platinum selling Greek albums, Monika's third studio full-length (and first worldwide release) comes out October 2 on Other Music Recording Co. Her new single, "Shake Your Hands," has just premiered on SPIN and can be streamed below. The magazine writes: “Shake Your Hands,” is a playful, disco-inflected track that features Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt on vocals. Monika’s wavering, Florence-esque voice anchors the song’s heavy dollop of twinkling synths and toy-keyboard interjections, ultimately shining — alongside Wyatt’s reedy tenor — on a brass-heavy climax.

Recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss, the album breathes generational genre-spanning influences. Amassing a dream-team of musicians, Steinweiss, Thomas Brenneck, Nick Movshon, Victor Axelrod, Leon Michels, and others from the Brooklyn scene join Monika on Secret In The Dark. A distinctly New York album with a breezy Mediterranean heart, her latest triumph is a cunningly crafted record of ‘80s art pop infused with organic leftfield disco tones.

On the heels of two platinum Greek releases, headlining major festivals and gracing the covers of music and fashion magazines in her homeland, Monika is thrilled to announce her third studio album, Secret in the Dark, available October 2 worldwide via Other Music Recording Co. Recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss, the album breathes generational genre-spanning influences. A distinctly New York album with a breezy Mediterranean heart, Secret in the Dark is a cunningly crafted record of ‘80s art pop infused with organic leftfield disco tones. The Fader just premiered "Stripping," one of the record's darker ethereal soundscapes, with Monika's syncopated operatic vocals slicing into shimmering synths and driving bass. 

Amassing a dream-team of musicians, Homer Steinweiss, Thomas Brenneck, Nick Movshon, Victor Axelrod, Leon Michels, and others from the Brooklyn scene join Monika on Secret in the Dark. Fans will have a special early chance to experience the funk-pop extravaganza live at Brooklyn’s Union Pool on July 9. Be sure to catch Monika live and stay tuned for more news coming soon!

Invisible Familiars' "New Mutation Boogie" Video Premiere


Invisible Familiars have premiered a video for "New Mutation Boogie" today via BlackBook, created by Chris Tucci, in advance of their upcoming northeast tour supporting Cibo Matto (tour dates listed below the video). BlackBook writes:

"Experimental indie band Invisible Familiars have created a sound completely unlike anything we’ve ever heard, or at least liked. Their track “New Mutation Boogie” incorporates mechanical tinkerings, as if recorded in a pulsing factory...the video fits the song’s title and essence perfectly. Commencing with a palpitating heart, we see animated figures morph into one another, eerily yet effortlessly, manifesting swaying trees, a scorching sun, a dancing animal kingdom, and a range of hypnotic, geographical shapes, mostly colored with neon lights."

"New Mutation Boogie" is from Invisible Familiars' debut full-length, Disturbing Wildlife, out now via Other Music Recording Co. and available on CD, LP and Download here



UPCOMING TOUR DATES
June 25 - Hamden, CT @ Ballroom at Outer Space 
w/ Cibo Matto
June 26 - Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground w/ Cibo Matto
June 27 - North Adams, MA @ The Mohawk (Solid Sound After Party)
