of Montreal is an indie pop band which formed in Athens, Georgia, United States in 1997. The band is fronted by Kevin Barnes, who writes, composes, and plays most of the music for his albums. They were among the second wave of groups to emerge from The Elephant 6 Recording Company and the group has a style that is typical of many Elephant 6 bands due to their interest in combining musical experimentation with the basic tenets of pop i.e. catchy melodies and sing-along choruses.
Thoughts on Songs with of Montreal
Beautiful song, feels like caressing my ears every time I listen to it. A dedication to the muse, nobody that exists, someone that we're dreaming of, someone whose image and traits we formed with our imagination. Maybe not even someone. Maybe an idea, our own philosophy of life and how we are dreaming of things to become one day. Daydreaming and being inspired by what we love the most, realistic or not, is a key for going on.
The best song of Montreal ever gave us, totally depressive and dark, yet so creative regarding its references, so rich in deeper meanings and lyrics that are going to kick me in the head one by one every time it plays - and I would like to hear it playing for ages. In fact, if I needed a soundtrack for my life, this would be it.
