As we continue our very gradual coming down from the high that is seeing Ms. Grace Jones live at the Hollywood Bowl this past weekend, we’re reminded of that legendary post-disco diva in the music of new-comer, Monika Christodoulou, the Athens, Greece native who goes by the simplified Monika.
Monica’s already made a name for herself in her native Greece with her first two albums and has been peaking interest stateside with her new album, Secret in the Dark, out today on Other Music Recording Co. (the relatively new label and offshoot of our longtime favorite NYC record store, Other Music).
The title track provides a groove-filled, disco soundtrack for New York City nights, regardless of your locale. Check out the video below.
