Mono (Electronic)

Influenced by cool jazz,'60s pop and classic film-soundtracks, the trip-hop duo Mono formed around vocalist Siobhan De Maré and producer Martin Virgo, a one-time member of Nellee Hooper's production team which worked on Massive Attack's seminal "Unfinished Sympathy" as well as Björk's Debut. After Virgo hooked up with De Maré in mid-1996, the pair recorded the Life in Mono EP and signed to Mercury by the end of the year. After working on their debut album Formica Blues, Mono gained a comparatively high profile through an appearance on the soundtrack to the American film Great Expectations. Formica Blues was released in America in February 1998, six months after its British appearance. ~ John Bush, Rovi

makes sense, Cocteau Twins and this DeMare

I'm surprised Life in Mono isn't used more in movies--pref e c t tone setting music. Awesome vocalist now sings for Violet Indiana with former Cocteau Twins.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually work

One album will never be enough. I weep for the potential follow-ups that were never made.

One of my favorite albums, Formica Blues, from the 90s. Definitely a smooth, James Bondy vibe. Sexy voice.

Yeah... in the Now Playing frame it has the wrong bio: ''Japanese experimental group Mono came together in 2000... ''. Once you click on the band name, though, the correct bio pops up, ''Influenced by cool jazz,'60s pop and classic film-soundtr a c k s . . . ' '

I don't know about sexy and passionate, but this song gives off a more bittersweet, melancholy vibe for me. Maybe it's the echoing reverb they've put into the vocals, but this always feels like the sort of song I'd hear in a mall someplace, walking around in a broken-heart e d haze after a breakup...a memory song...so for me, I'm not feeling the sexy vibe. :P

What are you guys talking about? This bio came up when I clicked on the link for Silicone, which is off of Formica Blues.

Formica Blues is not by this band. See http://en.wi k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / M o n o _ ( U K _ b a n d )

I'm confused. The album Formica Blues came out in 1997, but the group didn't form until three years later?

You need to try Violet Indiana if you love this. Same vocalist, but more guitar based. Same sexy, passionate sadness.

This is the best sexy passionate and erotic song. I wish they would make more song so sexy like this.

i like the way they mixed Life In Mono...its very passionate

I was very sad years ago, to find out this was the only album they made. I found out the hard way, that there is another band called Mono...bough t the album...not the same band at all.
