Montaigne drops new album and tour dates

September 12, 2019

THANK. GOD. After waiting a long three years since her debut album Glorious Heights, Montaigne has blessed spring of 2019 with her sophomore album Complex. And what a beauty she is! Ranging from themes of toxic relationships and personal evolutions to the climate crisis, and even a song written from the perspective of a sex robot – Montaigne has truly showcased her immense talents as a songwriter on this album.

 

 

Montaigne’s album strikes the perfect balance between raw honesty and punchy lyrics, and a touch of anger. She wrote this album during a dark period of her life where her daily routine had been completely shattered due to a debilitating illness.

She comments, “It was written during a period where I was extremely down on myself, not just because of my own insecurities, but I got very ill in a way I couldn’t understand and no specialist could understand. It’s now medically recognised as burnout but at the time I didn’t have that diagnosis which really messed me up.”

 

 

Known as a passionate performer, there is no better opportunity to grab some tickets to catch Montaigne’s latest tunes in the flesh. Our top picks of the album? It’s a toss up between the fiery and powerful anthem ‘Ready’ and the synth-tastic banger made for the festival circuit ‘Love Might be Found’. Her vocal range and gymnastics are dizzyingly impressive and the genre mash of strings, percussion and synths are sure to make this a live act to remember.
