In the span of a few years, 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 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 ‘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 1 million streams on Spotify and been consistently added on coveted international playlists including Fresh Finds and Indie Arrivals.
In 2019 The Montreals have already 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. Their breadth of audience has allowed the band to develop a devout fanbase which traverses traditional music demographics, nationally and internationally.
