of Montreal is a band from Athens, GA.
The band’s recorded material can be divided into two distinct periods. Their early work focused on 60s-tinged pop and psychedelic elements channeled through the prism of Kevin Barnes’s unique lyricism. In more recent years of Montreal's style changed to a mixture of electronica, funk, glam, and afrobeat music influenced by Prince and David Bowie.
Bambi and Cole met on a basketball court, filming a music video for a band that didn't have any music. After dating for six months, the two were married last August under a blanket of smoke from the season's forest fires. Reptaliens quickly evolved from a conceptual collage of ideas into the bedroom recording project for the duo, captured through analog synthesizers, electric guitars and recorded onto tape through an old karaoke machine.
As long time, active participants in the Portland music scene, Bambi and Cole call on a number of talented musicians to guest on songs throughout the entirety of Reptaliens recordings.
Inspired by sci-fi art, cult mentality and deep connections, Reptaliens create low fidelity chameleon dreamscapes somewhere between abstract expressionism and surrealism. Reptaliens is a project of exploration. Reptaliens' first full length album "Recordings" will be available summer 2016.
