MP3 of the Day #496: Mona

Mona, who were nothing short of amazing last Saturday night here in Washington, have released a piano version of ‘Lean Into the Fall’, the song we were told was going to be their first single off their debut album. It’s literally just singer Nick Brown’s voice over piano backing. A dangerous move for a lesser band, but I think this proves how strong Brown’s voice and the actual song are, if the guitars and drums are stripped away and there’s still a compelling performance. Gee, this treatment sounds and smells like Adele‘s ‘Someone Like You’…one can only hope that this band is destined to equally great things.
