Montero on Saturday 10th February 2018
Montero operates in the rich widescreen soft rock tradition, updating the romantic classicism of golden era love songs with a psychedelic pop brush. Montero's music evokes the extended soundscapes and textures of 70s prog, the easy listening adult weirdness of Jimmy Webb and Burt Bacharach, and the sports arena pounding of vintage MOR rock - sometimes all in the space of one song. With an emphasis on clear vocals, soaring melodies, lush instrumentation and dreamy glam pomp, Montero ventures into gently surreal realms of romance, yearning, and wonder. As a visual artist, Ben's comic-based style highlights the universality of small human moments via a cast of furry (or sometimes slimy) friends. His art has graced album covers, t-shirts and posters for Mac Demarco, Ariel Pink, Kurt Vile, Pond and others. He draws a regular comic for the Vice website. New music from Montero is due later in the year on Chapter Music, co-produced with Jay Watson of Pond/Tame Impala and Grammy Award winning engineer Riccardo Damian, recorded at Mark Ronson's London studio.
