There’s a thin line between rock’n’roll and religion, and nowhere thinner than in the intense, sharp, sweat-drenched, duelling-guitar euphoria of Mona. The four-piece Nashville-based band – or family, or gang, or band of brothers – are young, charismatic punk preachers. They’ll testify to the thrill they get from hunkering down in a Nashville, Tennessee basement, writing and recording the best debut album of 2011 so far. They’ll hymn the praises of visceral rock with heavenly fireworks in its soul. They want to convert everyone they come across. Imbuing secular music with honest passion and true grit is what Mona are all about. They’ve already caused a rumpus in the UK this summer and the rest of Europe is on the brink of falling for them as well… The only thing slick about Mona is their hair. The rest is arm-pumping, vein-throbbing, knee-jittering, raw-throated, singalong rock’n’roll.
