Mona Mur announces new album 'Snake Island'
“Her weapons are a passionately bloody voice and a gift for multilingual puns she applies to acerbic commentaries.” -NME
Best known for her unique voice and fierce live performance, German-born Mona Mur has been an influencer in our dark corner of the world for decades. Her well-documented artistry stretches far beyond music.
Having kicked-off her distinguishedly rebellious career during the punk explosion of the 80’s, Mona linked with members of Einstürzende Neubauten to release the seminal 12” single “Jeszcze Polska”, which immediately claimed “Single of the Week” status via NME upon release.
Deeply embedded in the DNA of Polish and German arts, throughout the years, Mona has accomplished everything from releasing critically acclaimed albums (employing a select group of notable producers), working with The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, composing for film, to being cast in plays. Most-recently, Mona has found herself scoring for the game industry.
Among many, many more, a short-list of Mona’s collaborators include F.M. Einheit and Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten, Thomas Stern of Crime and the City Solution, Raymond Watts of PIG, Kristof Hahn of Swans and of course, frequent collaborator and close friend En Esch of KMFDM fame.
Mona's next full-length album, SNAKE ISLAND is due soon via GIVE/TAKE.
