Orange

by MonaLisa Twins

While staying true to quirky, melodic 60s songwriting, plenty of harmonies and twangy guitar licks, this album branches out into very psychedelic but also earthy, bluesy, even jazzy tones for a more experimental, tongue-in-cheek side of the MonaLisa Twins

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"They're fabulous, sure as you're born! I would seriously enjoy playing on their next project."
John Sebastian - Singer & Songwriter (The Lovin' Spoonful)
working his blues harp magic on the MonaLisa Twins' new album ORANGE

"ORANGE – Magnificent album! Hope it gets to the TOP of the Pops!!"
Mike McGear McCartney - Performing Artist, Rock Photographer, Paul’s Brother

"ORANGE – I adore this record. Totally sublime. Top-notch electric guitar; fierce sounding chops and solos. Terrific songs – “Club 27” is a monster example of modern pop/rock. “Still A Friend Of Mine” gets to the heart and plays emotional havoc – beautifully constructed. The whole album is brilliantly constructed. There are five or six potential top ten hits on this brilliant album."
Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Singer & Songwriter
after his "Best Years Of Our Lives" 40 years anniversary tour in 2015

"ORANGE is a breath of fresh air in the relentless sludge of today’s pop music."
Steve Hunter - Session player for Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel & many more

"ORANGE – Hard to choose a track. Each has its merits, and several are very, very Beatle-influenced. Great album – superb production values and fabulously clear diction."
Tony Currie - BBC Radio Presenter, PD at Radio Six International



– Music and Sound –

The MonaLisa Twins, with 23-year-old actual twins Mona and Lisa Wagner fronting the band, are one of the very few modern groups who continue the tradition of song-writing that took off in 1963. They bring back what has been started 50 years ago and write modern songs in the 60s Beat music tradition, reviving the genre with a fresh twist without sounding pop-ish or trivial. Their signature features are their close harmonies and wiry, bright guitar sound and the mix of humour and depth in their music speaks to a wide range of international audiences.

On their debut album “When We’re Together“ (2012), which they recorded at the mere age of 16, they present finest Rock ‘n’ Roll and Beat music, skilfully venturing out in Psychedelic, Folk and even Latin genres, inspired by the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan or Simon & Garfunkel.

In comparison, their second album “ORANGE” (2017) gives a more mature, sometimes satirical, yet overall still light-hearted approach to topics we all deal with: Love, community, doubt, the past and future, and the generally unsettling direction society seems to be taking. While staying true to quirky, melodic 60s song-writing, plenty of harmonies and twangy guitar licks, this album branches out into more psychedelic but also earthy, bluesy, even jazzy tones for a very experimental, tongue-in-cheek side of the MonaLisa Twins.

MonaLisa Twins: “While listening to and playing all different kinds of music genres in our youth, we stayed with the 60s song-writing, something we think is way too much neglected these days. We wanted to write and play music that had the magic and the same impact on people that those classic tracks had on us.”

– Background –

But how? They were born into a country (Austria) that celebrated classical and folk music and which was rather detached from the humorous, easy going 60s spirit you associate with England or the States. They picked their parents wisely though. Their father is a musician/song-writer himself and, during the 80s and 90s, was running a recording studio producing renowned (inter)national artists including a Grammy winner. Together with him and their step-mother they fully concentrated on the Twins’ music and over the years built up a full-time family business.

– Achievements –

10 years, 4 albums, over 100 music videos, millions of YouTube views, tens of thousands of subscribers and a lot of blood, sweat and tears later, they are living and working in Liverpool/UK. With a host of live shows in Europe, the UK, USA and Australia, a recording session in Abbey Road Studios, a UK tour with Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, a 2-year long residency at the legendary Cavern Club, regular features on BBC and international radio stations and finally a Glastonbury performance under their belt, they have come a long way since daydreaming about the future at the age of 13.

– Sound Of Music 2.0 ? –

What they are most proud of? They did it their own way. Every video they released, every song they’ve written, every album they put out, every blog post on their social media, and even their website comes from the collective brain juice of their small but mighty team. That doesn’t mean at all that they don’t want or need the help of other people, but it means they’re willing to work twice or thrice as hard so they don’t have to give away their creative freedom or values for any short-term success. They created their own label and took DIY to a whole new level.

If you, too, love and treasure the quality song-writing and positive, witty spirit that exploded in the Sixties, the MonaLisa Twins might be the band you’ve been waiting for for the last 40 years.

The Twins have received praise from many music icons of the “Swinging Sixties”. Visit their website to find out what others are saying about The MonaLisa Twins! You might enjoy them as much as your 60s idols do …
