Review: Russian Doll Life/ Le Monnier, release date: October 3rd

Rating: *****

Russian Doll Life is the second album from Hertfordshire female fronted rock band Le Monnier, the follow up to their exciting debut album Cynic Sister which has provided them with many positive reviews and headlining slots at various gigs across the country. Since the previous album, singer Alexandra Le Monnier and guitarist Matt Keill have recruited a new drummer Josh Williams.

In their bio on their official website they claim this album is the best thing they have ever done and they don't disappoint. There is still the trademark powerful vocals and epic guitar riffs but on Russian Doll Life, Le Monnier also experiment with some songs that sound different to anything else they have done, including the epic ballad 'Home' and the unusual but still ultimately satisfying 'The Moth'.

The songs demonstrate further the variety of influences the band have and the flexibility the band have as a whole which surely shows Le Monnier have massive potential ahead of them. Alexandra Le Monnier's voice is stunning and the guitar work, especially on stand out track 'Mediocre Me' are unforgettable.

Russian Doll Life is sure to appeal to a wide range of music fans and if this album is anything to go by, they can only get even better.

Le Monnier's next tour date is on October 14th at Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire.
