Ahead of her highly anticipated forthcoming album Crocodile Kisses, Netherlands-based singer-songwriter Mone reveals her third single ‘Big Brown Bear’.
Comparisons to Joanna Newsom will no doubt emerge but there is something more cohesive from Mone’s arrangement both melodically and structurally that sets her apart.
Its orchestra coat of arms is a blessing and when combined with the choir of voices that drive it forward even further, you can’t help but feel remarkable hope in your heart and lungs when listening to it.
Mone manages to combine vulnerability with strength in a glorious way. Her album is sure to be a highlight of the year.
