Elizabeth Rothwell I heard the track Thumb first and I loved it immediately but I, sadly, had once again, I had never heard the band. From what I have managed to gleam from my initial impressions is that they have a number of very original ideas. some quite odd, which I like. I hope they are odd. Favorite track: Monophona - Thumb.

Dr. Beaf All Tags on this are wrong except the indietronic and trip. Sits in the dark, mysterious electronic corner channeling MA's Mezzanine's production. It's a hit amongst my working colleagues, and for good reason. It'd be great to hear live.

about

When Claudine and Chook first started discussing a common musical project in the winter of 2010, they came from
completely different worlds. He had discovered DJ-ing as a teenager and soon made a name for himself not only as a
turntable artist, but also as a drum&bass producer; she was a singer-songwriter touring with a folk-rock band and had
an admiration for the likes of Tom Waits, Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell. Neither one of them knew anything about
the other one's musical roots and influences. Yet, after having built successful careers in their respective fields, they
were eager to take on a new musical challenge and search for common ground.
The result of this collaboration is MONOPHONA, a blend of two extremes, electronic and intimate, melodic and
innovative. When the time came to take their songs to the stage, the duo was joined by Jorsch on drums and
percussion. He adds detail and dynamics to their set and, with his enthusiasm and broad musical knowledge, soon
became an invaluable asset, turning the duo into a trio.
Their debut album “The Spy” came out in November 2012. It has garnered international attention; being voted second
best album of the year on Ireland’s RTÉ2fm and was praised by Laurent Garnier as “a real achievement”. Fink described
them as “one of the best bands we’ve met while on the road”. Since their first gig in the summer of 2011,
MONOPHONA have made a name for themselves, both in their native Luxembourg but also abroad. They have opened
for acts such as Fink, Poliça, Elektro Guzzi and Daughter and been part of many a festival line-up, namely the Eurosonic
(Groningen), the c/o Pop (Cologne), the Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg) and The Great Escape (Brighton). In 2013, they
also scored a slot at one of Europe’s biggest festivals, the Sziget (Budapest).
At present they are ready to present their second album “Black on Black”, which will be released in January 2015 on
german Label Kapitän Platte. While “The Spy” had been almost entirely put together in the studio, this new collection
of songs has above all been influenced by what the band has learned from playing live.
