Monophonics have risen up again from their California studio Transistor Sound to offer the world a new album via indie label giants Colemine Records. Their new record entitled It’s Only Us, due next year reflects what they see as the current direction in the world, it's an expression that leans on the theme of humanity, that strives to speak to a wide range of listeners.
It’s a message of unity, strength, resilience and acceptance. Often known as a group that is keen to create a heavier version of classic soul, Monophonics are back with their trademark sound while introducing a healthy dose of new and warm textures that will saturate speakers. It’s easy to hear their years of record digging and being under the influence of rare sides by Brothers of Soul, Rotary Connection or Dee Edwards.
