Well, well, well, the ever evolving, always intriguing Nick Monaco returns with his latest opus, Half Naked. His Freak Flag lipstick isn’t even really all that dry from his debut album Mating Call, but Nick is at it again, bearing more of himself than he has ever before.
With dance music today, some think it superficial with so many musicians hiding behind songs since they are simply songs for the club, songs to make other people dance, but not Nick Monaco. On Half Naked, Nick steps a few feet further into his songwriting than ever before, striving for substance by diving deep within and writing these songs for himself. He reveals more, confidently embracing vulnerability, and explores how much more of himself he can be. If Mating Call was Nick dipping his feet into the water, Half Naked is Nick unabashedly diving right in.
