Vintage soul powerhouse group Monophonics has returned with a lush new single, the release date of their forthcoming album It’s Only Us, and the announcement of new stops on an upcoming tour. With the LP slated for March 13 on Colemine Records, the new title track follows “Chances” from last year in offering a glimpse into the Bay area crew’s unique musical direction as they touch on old-school sensibilities with a modern twist.
Couched in a bed of poignant harmonies, stylish horn lines, and powerful delivery that have come to define the Monophonics sound, “It’s Only Us” offers an uplifting message of love and peace that powerfully resonates in our current times. While the tune features a love story commensurate with soul music’s past, lead singer Kelly Finnigan describes the group’s unique spin approach to the track: “Inside the story is a message of unity, trust, and acceptance that goes beyond falling in love.” Stellar performances and effortlessly stylish production bring Monophonics’ hopeful theme to full bloom and mark another reason to be excited for the upcoming album.
