Montero is Australian artist and musician Ben Montero, who is based variously in Athens, Melbourne, New York, Austin and anywhere else he can lay his hat. As well as being somewhat of an idiosyncratic character and musical mastermind, he is also a visual artist. Ben’s comic-based style highlights the universality of small human moments via a cast of furry (or sometimes slimy) friends. He draws a column for Vice and his art has graced album covers, t-shirts and posters for Mac DeMarco, Ariel Pink, Kurt Vile, Pond and others. As if to return the favour, Mac DeMarco has invited him as main support on his forthcoming extensive European tour in November. Audiences will be in for an unexpectedly thrilling treat! Londoners will be able to catch a sneak-peak for an exclusive headline show at The Shacklewell Arms on 15 November.

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.
New music from Montero is due later in the year on Chapter Music, recorded at Mark Ronson‘s studio in London and co-produced with Jay Watson of Pond/Tame Impala and Grammy Award winning engineer Riccardo Damian.
