Music And Other Drugs are claiming MONA to be one of the indie artist to watch for 2018 and we have your reason why. She has just shared with us her debut EP, Au, and it is not one you want to miss out on. The EP stands at only three tracks but it is just enough to wet your appetite for some incredible alternative r&b. The producer/songwriter from Sweden has given us three tracks that will challenge the sound of r&b music and give it a whole new meaning in her own words. MONA explained the meaning behind the EP, Au, here:
Au is the chemical symbol for gold. Gold has historically been a symbol for things that perfect and divine, but also for aging and wisdom. I have used the metaphor in two ways; to express the “golden” things that are fading but also where I am as a more mature and independent woman who can process things in a different way.
With an incredible background behind and more enticing sounds this debut is a sure win for us here at Music And Other Drugs. Listen to her debut EP below.
