MonaLisa Twins – When We’re Together

MonaLisa Twins

Vienna-based MonaLisa Twins are a charming act that write songs in the ’60s Beat music tradition, evidenced by a variety of successes — from the lush folky weavings on “Won’t You Listen Now” to the infectious ’60s rockabilly inspiration “This Boy Is Mine”. The latter certainly borrows from the Paul McCartney school of songwriting, with slick guitar riffs leading a verse that eventually expands into an absolutely irresistible chorus. The guitar solo in the bridge seems like it could have been culled from a ’60s dance, too. The nostalgia throughout new album When We’re Together is both of the cutesy and infectious variety, resulting in a fun blast-from-the-past that’s a sure success from this talented group. You can purchase it on Bandcamp now.
