MonaLisa: They’ve Got the (Back)Beat! The MonaLisa Twins are bringing back the POP in pop. This musical duo is inching closer and closer towards mainstream success with each track. That widespread acclaim could be right around the corner with their release When We’re Together. This ambitious debut album features a hodge podge of genres from the duo. Latin grooves meet psychedelic rock meets folk music meets (Beatles) rock & roll – all blended together in tight harmonies and light guitar sound. To listen to The MonaLisa Twins is to be taken back to a time where the it was all about the music and only the music. Honorable mentions on the track listing include the Latin-tinged ‘Nothing is in Vain’, ‘This Boy is Mine’, and the Dylan-esque ‘Dreams’. As befitting their name, The MonaLisa Twins are a musical work of art in progress. They may be young, but their music belies their years, going back to an era that was well before their time. Somehow, these two girls are able to convey the fullness of the sounds being played around them to great accolades. Their voices drive the album, with the instruments providing a nice support to their rich notes. The MonaLisa Twins present pop the way it used to be: sweet, harmonic, with easy breezy lyrics that are impossibly catchy. The two have managed to capture the essence of what art is and what it means to people through their music video ‘When We’re Together’, which chronicles the making of an eventual artpiece from start to finish. The video shows how everyday people unite through the power of art. Touring through central Europe and recently in America, The MonaLisa Twins are garnering more attention and radio airplay on both sides of the Atlantic as their brand of pop brings the focus on what it should be on… the music.
