Bio

Continuously proving themselves as one of Australia's premiere Alt Pop exports. The Montreals, deliver a flurry of genre-meshing singles, consolidating them as a staple in a vibrant and flourishing Australian music scene. Increasingly bold and quirky music has earned them a following of over 20,000 'angels' on social media. The stand alone singles ‘deadheads’ and ‘RUDE’ were positively received nationally and internationally, cartwheeling the line between polished and racaus, with both attracting multiple radio plays on Triple J (Australia) and KCRW (United States). Collectively, their music has clocked well over 2.5 million streams on Spotify and been consistently added on coveted international playlists including Fresh Finds and Indie Arrivals.

2019 proved to be a breakout year for the group. The Montreals received nods from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, opening for them to over 40,000 patrons, as well as performing at Groovin The Moo Festival. A recent national tour support with Kingswood also saw the band play sold out dates nationally. It also made way for their first international shows at Live En Aout Festival in New Caledonia in addition to 2 feature's on Netflix's 'Terrace House' in Japan.

'Horror Movies' (out May 8th) shows a bold Alt Pop leap for the band, effortlessly taking risks but always making it their own :)

This track is so fun, plenty of memorable images and all round goofy goodness. Keep it up!

enjoying this one from the montreals that meshes crisp pop with some left field twists. those 'i don't mind' hooks are spot on!

Yet to hear The Montreals make a dud song. This one retains their clean songwriting chops but throws in a little goofball flair - took me way back to The Unicorns even.
