RUN AMOK
:: Burn The Mona Lisa ::
28 January 2008 / Demo / 3 Trk CDR
By AS

Bolton’s Mona Lisa are back, with quite a few line up changes and a new approach to their music. “Run Amok” steps up with dance floor pretensions as it slams home the indie funk bass/guitar riff with some edgy vocal hooklines. “Insatiable” is back in the vein of their searching rock, as Burn The Mona Lisa seem to have generated this swirling mixture of upfront stadium rock and roll with slightly lo-fi grinds. “Nursery Rhymes” is maybe the bands best track. This just goes straight for the rock jugular, pulsing with rugged basslines and sweeping echoed melodies. Overall it’s a strange collection of tracks that take the listener on a wildly varied journey, but essentially that’s half the fun of it.
