La La La Love The Monophonics

3 May

The first seventeen seconds, or so, of Monophonics “La La La Love Me” sound like they have come straight out of The Moody Blues “Nights In White Satin” with its lush and dark instrumental tones. But once the vocals start, another throwback tune comes to mind.

There is clearly a lot of soul on this track and it is hard not to see some comparisons to “A Whiter Shade of Pale” by Procul Harum. This song may be more restrained in its approach and vocals, but it has the same sort of deep heart and soul that is poured into it, as well as a similar tempo. Though “La La La Love” definitely airs more on the psychedelic side.

Monophonics have been around the music scene for a while, yet “La La La Love” still sounds new to the band. Lead singer Kelly Finnigan’s vocals at times displays shades of Stevie Wonder helping to fuse the trippy element of the tune with pure soul.
