Mono was a British pop duo which became a one-hit wonder in the late 1990s with their song "Life in Mono". The group's music is often described as trip hop, based on its similarities to contemporary electronic music acts including Sneaker Pimps and Portishead. Audible, and frequently cited, influences in Mono's songs include jazzy instrumentation reminiscient of 1960s spy film soundtracks and production styles rooted in 1960s pop music (see 1960s in music).
