Men of North Country (MONC) emerged from Tel Aviv's soul scene, bringing with them a fresh approach to creating the perfect three-minute soul nugget. The band started by chance, when soul DJ Yashiv Cohen was overheard singing along to the tunes he was playing at one of his Tel Aviv Soul Club parties. With the encouragement and eventual collaboration of his musician friends they formed Israel's finest soul outfit. And whilst managing to stay true to their beloved 60's Soul they also introduce a contemporary, fresh and personal twist.
UK based label ACID JAZZ RECORDS released two singles and a full-length album. All three releases garnered glowing reviews (including a warm recommendation from London's Metro and a 5-star review in Germany's Dynamite magazine).
Their releases are filled with memorable melodies, infectious hooks and refreshingly honest lyrics, which portray the band's love of a genre in which they truly excel. Influences worn with pride: The Teardrop Explodes, Style Council and Dexy's, but with an approving nod towards their 60's favourites: Al Wilson, Robert Parker and Gloria Jones.
