Bio

Scream Mountains early inception and musical direction can be traced all the way back to a lighthearted conversation between Paul (vocals/guitar) and Jordy (guitar) in 2019. Said conversation centred around ideas of creating an innocent, pure and fun side-project to ‘Triggerlip’, an alternative punk-rock band they had been writing and performing in, from which the duo met. For a while, a mere passing conversation was all that it was until Paul took the initiative to start demoing tracks and sharing it with Jordy. At this point in time, Jordy had been developing a keen interest in recording and music production and proposed to take the first two demos ‘Ten Forty Five’ and ‘Bunkin’ to the studio. Pleased with the results and vibe of the tracks, the only thing that had stopped the duo on their path was a question of “what next?”. The answer was ‘Scream Mountain’, and soon enough Watto (vocalist from Triggerlip) and drummer Nelly (Convulse, Grenade Brain) joined the indie-rock outfit in early 2020. The band staying true to their mantra of self-producing their music, soon followed up with acoustic track ‘Blue’ and their first written and recorded song under the completed lineup; ‘Haze’.

The band’s new single ‘Proximity’ is out now, and with that, there’s no sign of Scream Mountain slowing down any time soon.

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.

There's something harkening back to the golden age of indie-pop-rock (a triple hyphenate, I know) here and I love it. The sort of record that'd comfortably fit in with Grey's Anatomy or The O.C, probably by virtue of hints of Evermore.

Feels like I've been picked up by a cloud, and am cruising down the highway! Great vocals on this track, they're shining through!
