Last Boat Mp3

Listen to

I came across Montpelier a little while ago with their self titled EP in 2009, initial thoughts of Coldplay and Arcade Fire as points of departure, but certainly strong song writers to keep an eye on. The bands new material has improved out of sight, working with Aria nominated producer Tim Powles (Regular John, The Church) has had an impact on the bands direction, with production quality and moving closer to their own unique sound. The first single, Last Boat, employs the epic intro, building up to the rather huge beat that drops to get the head nodding. The album demos also sound very promising. Check it out.

The boys are setting out on a Mini tour to support the single, so check the myspace for deets!

    Love this stuff. Thoughtful arrangement, articulate production, and inspired songwriting. Can’t wait to hear what’s to come next if this single is anything to go by.

    Come to NYC!

    Definitely a new direction sonically for the Montpelier team. High production values, really catchy epic sound. There’s something about the varying dynamics, and the vocals that really grab my attention. Love the arrangement..

    Very impressive stuff. Looking forward to hearing these other tracks you speak of! Kudos to team Montpelier.

    Looking forward to seeing them live in Brisbane!
