01 - Lolly
02 - Feel Like A Girl
Monocle Rose: two girls, two boys and lot of noise is how their promo postcard describes them. This two track EP is indie-tinged rock with some very good influences popping up in the background (whether deliberate or not). Opening track 'Lolly' is kind of like a mix of a harder-edged Suede with a hybrid of Cerys Matthews & Charlene Spiteri on vocals. The chorus is very infectious pop punk melodicious (I know that's not a real word but it works for me!). 'Feel Like A Girl' is more laid back and has a Catatonia feel about.
I can see Monocle Rose becoming
pretty popular, definitely one to watch out for!
