With tracks recently featured in in Channel 5's hit TV series Tripping Over and two Hollywood films (a version of the 70's Ohio Express classic 'Yummi Yummi Yummi' on the soundtrack of the food-fetish-horror-thriller film Feed, and the track 'Koolest Band' in the US teen hit Drive Me Crazy), Sydney band Montana are doing something right!
The pop foursome serve up a head-shaking, multi-layered musical cocktail with their latest album Starsign: Tarantula. Packed with eclectic tunes, the follow-up to their brilliant debut album Bubblegum Love has cemented the band's reputation for pop perfection.
Included for the European release of Starsign: Tarantula are five exclusive never-before-heard tracks: a brilliant complement to the album, the five new songs are by turn funny and dark, giving the unique Montana take on the world.
Having gigged everywhere from Austin's South By South West to LA's famous Whiskey A Go Go via Spain, France, England, New Zealand and Australia, the band aren't strangers to being on the road. The band look forward to returning to these shores in 2007.
Honey-voiced lead singer Paul Scott, describes the band's sound as "Supergrass meets Brendan Benson on holiday in Montana with jangly guitars" - and with influences that range from The Beatles to Bright Eyes, what's not to like?
