Gotobeat is proud to present Montrell with Michael Kurtz and guests at The Victoria Dalston.
𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗥𝗘𝗟𝗟 – The band formed gradually after an actor, a producer, a tennis coach and an art history student saw each other perform at a handful of shows in London, and were inspired enough to make a record together.
Montrell’s first EP is the result of Jonny’s lofi demos rearranged by the band, and recorded in a studio beneath the cobbles of Chagford Street. Chorused and distorted guitars blend with smooth, reverby vocals and brutally honest lyrics.
Having cut their teeth at intimate performances like Sofar Sounds, they are now captivating larger audiences at Paper Dress Vintage, Servant Jazz Quarters and Sebright Arms. Spring 2019 they toured Germany and were chosen by London’s Citadel Festival to headline one of their tents.
Enjoying the phased guitar sounds of Tame Impala, the feathery drums of Steely Dan and the clever lyrics of Matt Maltese, they are now shaping their second EP — releasing soon.
The guys end the year on their second European tour through Holland, Germany, and the UK.
𝗙𝗢𝗥𝗘𝗜𝗚𝗡 𝗧𝗩 – ‘Foreign TV’ sees the psych-pop four-piece introduce a sound that doesn’t allow the band to fall into the plethora of new music; it’s ambient, but with an edge that keeps it from fading into background music. While it’s little to go on, it’s enough to know that Foreign TV are starting strong and no doubt only going to get stronger. – Gigslutz
“Foreign TV” sees the band in laid-back, slacker mode but there’s a lot more to them than this side. And the track is a veritable earworm as in the few weeks since the gig I’ve unconsciously been humming it without realising – it just comes again and again. – Let it Happen Blog
