MONA have just announced details of their much anticipated Irish debut, at Whelan’s on Thursday, 17th of February 2011.
A four-piece rock band that combine romantic rock ‘n’ roll with songs for the city folk, MONA formed in Ohio but relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. Their debut single ‘Listen To Your Love’ was recorded in their basement and released in the UK on 13 Sept 2010 by their own Zion Noiz recordings (the 7” limited edition vinyl sold out in a day).
The UK & Irish media have already been unequivocal in their praise for Mona with a huge amount of positive articles written about them. NME is a big fan (with several features and an inclusion on the NME’s best new bands of 2010 list) and the band feature on the BBC’s Sound of 2011 poll shortlist as well as receiving glowing reviews in the likes of Q Magazine, Clash Music, The Fly, The Guardian, Music News, The Mirror, The Sun…this was before the band had played any shows in the UK or released a single!
