Adelaide’s premier colour-clad indie-pop group, The Montreals, return today with their first single of the year, ‘Lilac, I Think’ which is premiering via Music Feeds today.
In the last year, the quartet have toured with Kingswood, performed at the South Australian leg of Groovin’ The Moo, played a couple of shows around town and in other exciting news, they’ve also been readying their second EP, Horror Movies, following up from their debut Indigo Club in 2016.
‘Lilac, I Think’ is the first taste of what’s to come, and sees the band take a huge step forward in the group’s creative evolution. The navigates through themes of conflict and personal resolution, juxtaposing the darker sonic material with the band’s bright and jovial sound. Taking influence from the highly-memorable indie-pop sounds of the late 2000’s, ‘Lilac, I Think” is the perfect midway between nostalgia and contemporary reinvention.
Of the track, The Montreals said:
“‘Lilac, I Think’ dabbles with issues of intrapersonal and interpersonal conflict, but in a super fun, approachable way. We are all pretty darn good at handling ourselves when things are going well, but how we deal with conflict is really defining. Are you a pacifist? Do you embrace conflict? Do you avoid it entirely? Conflict is a motif that sort of dances through the entire Horror Movies EP.”
