You won’t get it out of your head: “Shotgun” is jazzy pop from Canada’s @MonkeyHouseband

MONKEY HOUSE, “Shotgun”

It’s a bit off the path from a lot of today’s pop music, but that’s probably what makes it refreshing:  “Shotgun” is new jazzy pop from Canadian band Monkey House.  Canadian radio listeners will be familiar with them from the 90’s and early 2000’s with such songs as their cover of Steely Dan’s “Lazy Nina” as well as the original “Big Money” receiving regular airplay.  Led by pianist, Emmy Award winner, and Juno Award nominee Don Breithaupt, Monkey House’s “Shotgun” has an 80’s vibe about it that will appeal to fans of artists of that era such as Matt Bianco.  But it’s the summery chorus that you won’t get out of your head and can easily be earmarked as a great summer driving song.  It comes from the forthcoming album Friday with a video to follow that will be directed by Oscar winner Miles Dale.  Don’t let this one slip by – definitely one fine summer bop!
