    Exceptional Album

    I can’t seem to find the right words to describe this wonderful Album! Every song transports me to a time when life was much slower and joyful! Still a Friend of Mine is an absolute masterpiece! This song is a beautiful, well written song that touches my soul. Destined to be the next classic of all time! The chord structures and instrumentation behind these beautiful voices is sublime! Thank you Mona and Lisa for giving us this treasure!!!

    Good pop album !

    Ari Raki (verified owner)

    “Orange” by lovely MonaLisa Twins is an excellent pop album, not perfect but great enough to make you smile and enjoy some really good songs and the heavenly harmony vocals that these two can do. All the songs are written by Mona and Lisa and most of them works very well. I´m not very fond of the opening sound collage “The Future” and the following swing style song “No More Worries Company” though the singing saves a lot but what comes after that is pure ear candy. I like all the rest of the songs but my biggest favorite is the beautiful “Close To You” and I really hope to see video from that. John B. Sebastian blows bluesy harp on two of the songs. “Waiting for The Waiter” is one of the highlights of the album too and excellent guitar work and great singing reaches too the blues feeling. But as I said all the songs from track 3 to the end of the album are good. Keep up the gppd work and stay groovy.

    "The Future" is bright ORANGE for MonaLisa Twins

    Donnis Kelly (verified owner)

    Wow! A Magical Mystery Tour of wonderful music. MonaLisa Twins have such terrific voices but their musical abilities are even more marvelous. They run the complete spectrum from the whimsical “No More Worries Company” (which you can’t get out of your head!) to the hard rocking “Club 27” and then the hauntingly beautiful ballad of “Still a Friend of Mine.” These ladies are destined to have their world wide #1 hit of “That’s Life” (which you can’t get out of your head either!) before it is over. The music shows definite signs of influence in the classic rock that I love. They are super talented and I can’t wait for another album of original tunes. You are destined for the “topper most of the popper most.” I first heard your cover songs of some of the Beatles tunes. You are terrific at putting your own spin on the classic songs and giving them life again. Keep singing and I’ll keep listening. Stay groovy.

    Wonderful!

    This was the first CD I bought of Mona & and Lisa, and I really love it. Compared to the previous album, their own style seems to be more developed, with heavenly melodies fitting nice and sometimes surprising harmonies. A very optimisitic music.

    A good time

    I have discovered that if you have a MonaLisa Twins song stuck in your head, the best thing to do is to listen to another MonaLisa Twins song, and get that stuck in your head instead. I had the intriguing “Count On Me” on repeat in my brain, but then I watched the video for their anthem “Once Upon a Time” on YouTube and that seems to have taken over. Can’t complain. They’re both very good. So’s the rest of the album they’re on, ORANGE.

    The MonaLisa Twins are Mona (vocals, mainly drums and rhythm guitar) and Lisa Wagner (vocals, mainly lead guitar) with their father Rudi Wagner on bass and piano, co-writing the songs, and producing. On this album there are a couple of tracks with John Sebastian, formerly of the Lovin’ Spoonful, sitting in on blues harp. The Twins have been posting YouTube videos since the sisters were about 14, many of them covers of Beatles songs. The Beatles connection goes deeper: About four years ago the family moved from their native Austria to Liverpool, and the Twins later had a two year residence playing every Saturday night at the Cavern Club.

    I’ve really been enjoying ORANGE. You can call it a throwback if you like, but there’s nothing wrong with being influenced and inspired by some of the best music of the past, calling back some of the qualities that have been lost in our push to the present day.

    Moods range from melancholy to upbeat to downright slapstick. “No More Worries Company” is a ton of fun, but pointy; careful you don’t get jabbed by it.

    Then there’s the darkly goofy “Sweet Lorraine”. I had ORANGE on shuffle play with the Twins’ Beatles cover albums and “Sweet Lorraine” came up immediately after “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”. Now that’s a medley! But honestly… “Sweet Lorraine” is the better song of the two. I’ve never been a big fan of “Maxwell”, but “Lorraine” hits the target “Maxwell” missed.

    Fifty years after Abbey Road, not only are the children of that era still listening to the Beatles, but many of their children and their grandchildren are too. The MonaLisa Twins are not only listening but learning and putting their own spin on the music of that time, with joyous results.

About the Album

The MonaLisa Twins’ much anticipated follow-up original record to their debut album “When We’re Together”. 5 years have passed since the release of original material while the Twins played countless shows all over Europe, moved their residence to England, and learned some important life lessons. In other words … they lived life.

In comparison to their first album, which was still written in their teens, ORANGE gives a more mature, sometimes satirical, yet overall still light-hearted approach to topics we all deal with. Love, community, doubt, the past and future and the generally unsettling direction society seems to be taking.

While staying true to their passion for melodic, quirky songwriting, plenty of harmonies, a very “60s” sound and twangy guitar licks, this album branches out into new territories and incorporates very psychedelic but also earthy, bluesy, sometimes even jazzy tones. Built upon everything you loved about their debut album, you can expect to hear a more experimental and very tongue-in-cheek side of the MonaLisa Twins.
