‘Shake Your Hands’ With Monika and Andrew Wyatt on New Single
It's the danceable second single off her upcoming album 'Secret in the Dark'
Monika Christodoulou’s upcoming album Secret in the Dark is not technically her debut — she’s released two well-received albums in her native Greece — but her latest single “Shake Your Hands” sounds like a new beginning, or at least a drastic step forward for the singer/songwriter. She recorded the album with Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss (whose no-frills style also served at the backbone for St. Vincent’s latest), and “Shake Your Hands,” is a playful, disco-inflected track that features Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt on vocals. Monika’s wavering, Florence-esque voice anchors the song’s heavy dollop of twinkling synths and toy-keyboard interjections, ultimately shining — alongside Wyatt’s reedy tenor — on a brass-heavy climax.
