Monika “Secret in the Dark”


Greek pop sensation Monika has just premiered a rather old school funky sounding new single “Secret in the Dark” (which can be listened to below via SoundCloud) which is the title track of her new album that came out earlier this month via Other Music Recording Company.

“Secret in the Dark” is blatantly and unapologetically disco. It carries on that old school kind of dance and soul vibe that such a genre can. Be that as it may, it is still a pretty fresh sounding track. It makes you feel as though the night has just begun and that it holds all kinds of unknown promise that you have to go out and find for yourself. Pitchfork goes into further detail, saying:

Monika’s American rebirth is written all over the record’s title track: The deep clavinet groove runs on the DNA of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”, and gives way to luscious, loopy disco and Parallel Lines-era Blondie wooziness—a stylish amble through late 70s New York nightlife, essentially. But there’s still something unmistakably European about the track’s kitschy sensibility: “Secret” has a strong foothold in Euro-disco’s lineage, from Germany’s Veronika Fischer to ABBA.

That being said, if you need to shake your groove thing put “Secrets in the Dark” on. It should help you get the job done.
