Mona are an alternative rock band from Nashville, Tennessee who have been compared to Kings of Leon. They comprise vocalist Nick Brown, drummer Vince Gard, bassist Zach Lindsey and guitarist Jordan Young. They are named after Brown's grandmother.
This is Mona's debut single and it serves as an introduction to the band's brand of retro rock. Said Brown to the BBC: "It's pretty self-explanatory – there's a sound on the horizon and the volume's gonna grow."
The video features images of '50s icons ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Elvis. Brown enthused to Q magazine: "Things were clearer then, they made sense. If you look at Marlon Brando in The Wild One, he was just a cool mother f---er. It wasn't, 'What demographic is he appealing to?' He was just f---ing cool. Those images are eternal."
