Q&A Scene: Angus & Steve ~ The MONTREALS

Tell us about your new single ‘Sardines’?

Stefan: Sardines suck. The small oily fish that is. Sometimes, things you hate are cool though because they give reference to what you do like. You can’t fully appreciate good things, if there aren’t bad things. If everything was brilliant, nothing would be brilliant. Ya know?

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?

Angus: They’re all our little sonic babies and we can’t pick favourites :).

How would you describe your sound in food form and why? 

Angus: Pop rocks & vomit. We do a pretty neat job of blending some of the lines between a few genres (such as pop and/or rock) and pop rocks are a tasty as.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

Stefan totalled his car on the way to tracking our last single! We got all the tracks done but called the tune ‘deadheads’ because he defs is one for pullin’ that stunt off!

What, or who, inspires you?

Stefan: Zack Villere, Steve Lacy are both rad bananas. Anything where the artist, as well as the music, are groovy!

Which song do you wish you wrote?

Stefan: Pokemon Theme Song – Jason Paige (1999)

What’s next for you?

Tourz, tourz, tourz, singlez, singlez singlez, heapz of fun stuff!

What’s your scene?

Angus: Probably that one in Pulp Fiction where Sammy Jackson and JT have to clean all the blood out of the car because we always get ourselves in silly situations and Tarantino is darn cool.
