Bio

The band's early inception and musical direction can be traced back to a conversation between Paul and Jordy in 2019. For a while, a mere passing conversation was all that eventuated until Paul took the initiative to start demoing tracks and sharing them with Jordy. Following this, Jordy who had been developing a keen interest in music production proposed to take the early demos into the studio. Pleased with the results, the only thing that had stopped the duo on their path was a question of “what next?”. The answer was ‘Scream Mountain’, and soon after Watto and Nelly joined the indie-rock outfit in early 2020. Staying true to the mantra of self-producing their music, SM soon followed up with a slew of singles, spending countless hours in the studio, ultimately culminating with the band's first body of music that presented itself as the debut EP 'Watercooler Talk', released in early 2021.

As a result of this release, SM has been featured on Spotify's 'Local Noise' playlist, with two of the four tracks receiving high charting positioning and remaining in rotation for a number of months. 
 Following the success of 'Watercooler Talk', the band returned to the studio over the early months of 2021, writing and recording tracks for their sophomore EP due for release in late 2021. The first single off of the EP, 'Rush' is set for release in late June and with that, there’s no sign of Scream Mountain slowing down any time soon.

Yeah - encouraging stuff here, and a really great build at the end.

Good signs from Scream Mountain. This song's played with an upright indie posture but there's these darker elements and influences colouring how the band operate - making for something melodic but downcast.

really enjoying the mood and narrative qualities in this one, i'm off daydreaming and painting pictures and imagining stories in my head when this gets going.
