'Lost Tobacco Road' - Check out the video premiere on CLASH
Emerging from the small soul scene of Tel Aviv, Israel, Men Of North Country bring a
fresh approach to creating the perfect three-minute soul nugget. Originally started by
chance when soul DJ Yashiv Cohen was overheard singing along to the 45’s he was
spinning; the band have now released two full length albums on Acid Jazz Records -
The North (2012) and This City (2016) - garnering glowing reviews along the way. The
band featured live in session on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC 6
Music (also heard on Lauren Laverne’s ‘Best Live Music on BBC6 2016’ show).
MONC have now announced the release of new single Lost Tobacco Road taken from
recent album This City. A Bondian horn-driven affair of a winding adventure gone sour,
Lost Tobacco Road is available from 11th August, ahead of the bands performances at
London’s Got Soul and Brighton Mod Weekender.
Fri 25 August - Blues Kitchen, Shoreditch (London's Got Soul)
Sat 26 August - Volks, Brighton (Brighton Mod Weekender)
Filled with memorable melodies, infectious hooks and refreshingly honest lyrics, MONC
stay true to their beloved 60’s Mod Soul, whilst also introducing a contemporary and
personal twist to their sound.
