PRESENTED BY YAEL SHOSHANA COHEN
Men of North Country (MONC) emerged from Tel Aviv's soul scene, bringing with them a fresh approach to creating the perfect three-minute soul nugget, and whilst managing to stay true to their beloved 60′s Soul they also introduce a contemporary, fresh and personal twist.
In 2010 MONC signed with the London based Acid Jazz Records, which put out their debut 7″, to glowing reviews. The second single, a cover version of The Human League's "Mirror Man", was released in May 2012, and was a cheeky taster of MONC's exciting debut album, "The North".
An album rippling with memorable melodies, infectious hooks and refreshingly honest lyrics, it portrays the band's love of a genre in which they truly excel. Influences worn with pride: The Teardrop Explodes, Style Council and Dexy's, but with an approving nod towards their 60′s soul favourites. The album was met with excitement all over Europe's mod and soul scene and was followed by three successful tours there.
On the second tour, the CopaseDisques label saw an opportunity and put all seven lads in the all-analogue Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Studios in Hamburg, to record 4 new songs. Those were released in March 2014, as an EP called "Magic", especially for their April '14 European tour. Their second LP on Acid Jazz Records will be released later this year.
