Mt Mountain could be on the cusp of something special. – The Music
Mt. Mountain are a revelation.
Over the last four years, the Perth quintet have built a formidable reputation – not just for their masterful songcraft, but as one of the most compelling live bands in Perth – a distinction which has seen them share stages with myriad Australian and international heavyweights including Sleep, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Boris.
Mt. Mountain formed in mid-2012. A year later, they put out their first release – the slow, brooding four-track demo OMED. In mid-2014, they followed up with their first EP, as well as the 7-inch, Chantry / The Villain, a few months later. In that same year, they played In the Pines and were crowned the 2014 Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the WAMi Awards.
In 2015, RTRFM selected Mt. Mountain as one of 12 acts to feature in its short film live performance series The View From Here. Later that year played the State of the Art Festival and supported Thee Oh Sees, Earthless and MONO.
In 2016, Mt. Mountain release their first full-length album, COSMOS TERROS. Over 18 months in the making, the six songs on Cosmos Terros represent the clearest realisation of the band’s expansive sounds – menacing, meditative and utterly entrancing.
