Monika’s music is influenced by ‘80s art pop and organic leftfield disco tones. Her new full-length Secret In The Dark is out now via Other Music Recording Co. The greek singer/songwriter is taking her live show on the road. The string of dates includes a stop at Making Time in Philadelphia, a support slot with Carly Rae Jepsen and kicks off on February 23 in Los Angeles.
On her new single “Secret In The Dark”, DFA’s Juan MacLean puts his unique touch on the album title track which premiered today. Check out “Secret In The Dark” (Juan MacLean edit) below.
“Secret In The Dark” breathes generational genre-spanning influences. 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. 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 exudes generational and genre-spanning influences. Monika’s live show is a force to be reckoned with.
