Nashville-based newcomers Mona are named after frontman Nick Brown's grandma, which makes a bit of sense: the band plays a kind of classic rave-up rock & roll that would be familiar to rockabilly cats and kitties of the Fifties. Yet their full sound and turbo-charged energy situates them squarely in the present day. They're already stars in the U.K., and they were singled out as faces to watch at last year's MTV Awards. The band's self-titled debut album gets its U.S. release on Tuesday, but you can preview the track "I Seen" here.
