I was just wondering if any others on here like the new and up and coming band Mona? They are also a really great live band.

If you haven't heard of them, check out their first single:

Ive seen a couple of their songs , it hasn't blown me away or anything but they play straightforward rock and i like that , a lot better than most stuff at the moment.

They're interesting. Except the singer sounds like the singer from Kings Of Leon meets the sing of Neon Trees. hmmmm, maybe it'll grow on me.

They are certainly getting a lot of hype in the UK -on lots of bands to watch in 2011 lists
From what Ive heard sound ok and looking forward to hearing more
Also sense they could be one of those bands you need to see live

They do have to be careful not to be crippled by the comparisons to Kings of Leon

I like Lines in the Sand. Very Similar to Kings of Leon, you can take that however you want really.

They're fantastic live though, from what I see on Youtube.

Got my latest Q issue last week and they are on their "the 10 new faces of 2011" list. The article sounded qite interesting and they were also referenced to Bruce and TGA as well as the obvious KOL. I really like what I've heard so far - pretty straight forward rock with a touch of the Clash for me as well. My first new discovery of 2011 ....

Thank's to Down by the Mersey I found this band. In my opinion they sound quite like the KoL, Clash, U2 and a little tiny-piny-mini bit like Springsteen in his rougher Darkness-period... Going to do a bit research on them later, I think I'm going to like them!

discovered this band right after Christmas, and i quite like them. it's too bad there's so little music avalaible. don't know if i'll be able to make any dates they're playing nearby though...

btw, i joined the boards today, and it's dead over there... there's like 250 members and no one posts.. so weird. we have to make a Gaslight fans invasion and show them how it's done! xD

Love this band. I have the Trouble On The Way 7" and pre-ordered the Teenager single as well. Hopefully I can see them next month.

I'm waiting for Listen To Your Love to come down in price. I love Mona, but I won't pay $50 for two songs out of principle. That scalping mentality is ridiculous.

Teenager comes out on Monday, by the way!

Mona were pretty awesome if the truth be known last night. Nice bunch of lads who were hanging out before the gig in the bar. Hoping to see them again in Liverpool in May.
