Moneta – The Only Constant

Moneta – The Only Constant

 

In just a matter of days the Seattle based Rock/Alternative band known as Moneta will release their new record. “The Only Constant” will be officially released and  thrown down live at the Showbox at the Market in downtown Seattle on March 22nd. I was fortunate enough to get an advance copy and I am going to give you a bottom line up front… right here, right now, pre-release take on the record… Ready?? Sure you are so lets get going!

The record is packed full of powerful popish hooks and the band has seemingly, through a series of diverse situations, grown more mature and are ready to take the next step towards national notoriety. They have focused less on the growling angst of their earlier sound and have focused more on lyrics and smart melodies. This formula has proven to be the right one for Moneta as they are all but set to move onward and upward with “The Only Constant” being their cornerstone.  From start to finish, from “The Jackal and the Lion” to “We all live to Die”… “The only Constant” delivers a whirlwind of stellar harmonies, solid guitar structure and fronted by lead vocalist Jordan Thompson, the band sounds tighter and better than ever.

 

“All My Fault”, the first single released off of the record gives you a shot of feel good guitar pop, huge sounding harmonies and ear catching choruses that are easily on par with the best and brightest in the genre. The songwriting, throughout the record, is wondrously catchy and the record is filled with sing along, heartfelt anthems like “Rewrite the World”  that show how these guys can appeal to a wide spectrum of fans.  The reason that Moneta will be so successful in generating mass appeal with this record is that they draw influence from a really great source… Life.

The bottom line is that “The Only Constant” flows seamlessly throughout, is expertly recorded and packed full of incredible harmonies, catchy hooks and truly life inspired lyrics. These guys, Moneta, are the real deal and they are bringing their new record to the Showbox live on March 22nd.  “The Only Constant” will be released this Tuesday, March 18th. You can still pre-order the album here: http://moneta.bandcamp.com/ and you yourself can decide… but as for me, my truck windows are down the radio is cranked and its Moneta in the CD changer.
