Bio

In only their sophomore year, Adelaide’s most cheerful, colour-clad quartet, The Montreals, delivered a flurry of successful singles, consolidating them as a staple in a vibrant and flourishing South Australian music scene. Incorporating sleazy R&B hooks, So-Cal rock, and a dash of disco blended into your favourite smoothie. The stand-alone singles ‘deadheads’ and ‘Sardines’ were positively received nationally and internationally, cartwheeling the line between polished and raucous, with the former attracting multiple radio plays on Triple J (Australia) and KCRW (United States). Collectively, their music has clocked nearly 1 million streams on Spotify and been consistently added on coveted international playlists including Fresh Finds and Indie Arrivals.

The Montreals’ eclectic style has garnered sold-out support slots with internationally successful acts across a variety of genres, including Duke Dumont, Alpine, North East Party House and Last Dinosaurs. As well as performing at Oh Yes Festival to over 5,000 patrons alongside Pnau, and SAFIA to name a few. Their breadth of audience has allowed the band to develop a devout fanbase which traverses traditional music demographics, nationally and internationally.

After enlisting the services of 123 Agency, and releasing ‘Y2K’ which garnered label interest, these kids are ready to capitalise on their foundation and push themselves into the national spotlight in a breakout 2019.

“It's hard to wrap my head around how songs can still affect me as much as ‘deadheads.’ does.” - Indie Shuffle.

it's a bubbly mix of late 2010 era indie pop that puts a smile on your mug.

Swirls of colourful sound. I need a dose of this everyday I reckon! I loveeee the vocals too. They come natural and I want to sing a long to every word.
