On the heels of two platinum Greek releases, headlining major festivals and gracing the covers of music and fashion magazines in her homeland, Monika has released the new album Secret In The Dark worldwide via Other Music Recording Co. A distinctly New York album with a breezy Mediterranean heart, her latest triumph is a cunningly crafted record of ‘80s art pop infused with organic leftfield disco tones.
Babyboy is about a journey, exactly like Monika’s journey from Athens to New York. Monika worked with Spyros Dahlias on the video, he “wanted the video to be a sci-fi dream, to feel dark and mysterious like an old James Bond title sequence and have many many Monika’s in it. She’s multiplying and trying to find her Babyboy. She never reaches him at the end, but again it’s all about the trip.”

Amassing a dream-team of musicians, Homer Steinweiss, Thomas Brenneck, Nick Movshon, Victor Axelrod, Leon Michels, and others from the Brooklyn scene join Monika on Secret In The Dark. Recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss, the album breathes generational genre-spanning influences. http://www.iammonika.com
