Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: the band: MONT OLIVER

10 lis

Finally, another post in the „I present to you” music series. It’s been a long time since I’ve dedicated one post for a band*, fosucing mostly on showing you the recent hits from different genres. But now I have made a nice discovery, which could actually work under #HipsterAlert title, as they are still mostly recognizible in their motherland. And we should definitely change that by spreading their sound all around. So now, without any further ado, I give you:

MONT OLIVER is a Danish band I have discovered while at Roskilde Festival. They made a nice impression on me live and were the first band during the Intro-Days that deserved my loud clapping and whistling, as they showcased an amazing rock energy I really like and admire. In other words: they bought me completely with their amazing show. I even wrote about them that first day: „Either way Mont Oliver is my choice of the day – very good, very catchy electro-pop, the first band at Roskilde Festival worthy of my whistling. Also (for now) the most crowded one!”.

I rediscovered them again in September and listened to them extensively. Their style is so eclectic, combining pop, alt-rock, rap and electronic music that I couldn’t do anything else, but to fall head over heels for it. And those vocals? A bit Woodkid-like I would say, which is another compliment for the artists. I also like the Timbaland-like parts, which add an additional layer of awesome to the music.

Problem with writing/showing anything about the band is the fact that they’ve only published one EP record – „19„, containing six songs and only half of them are available online. Fortunately it’s not impossible to get a hold of this amazing EP and even more fortunately the best one’s of the disc, are the three that you can find on YouTube. Each track showcases the band’s unique style and sinks in your brain for longer time. Truly amazing! I am really waiting for them to finally drop their debut album, which is still being recorded.

So now, finally time to listen to some gems. „19” is my absolute favourite, mixing such different elements with an amazing effect. My second favourite „Golden Glow” isn’t available online, but both „Give Me Nothing” and „White Sheets” also sound spectacular. So without more words – just give it a listen and love it as much as I do. :)

White Sheets

That would be it, I guess! I hope you’ll enjoy their music as much as I do! :)

TUSIND TAK & TAK SKAL I HAV** MONT OLIVER! :)

PS. * (although Walk The Moon so deserves this spot and I should finally look into that)

** [TASKI HEJ]? I still don’t know how to write it in Danish, the greeting that everyone ended their concerts with.
