Of Montreal

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.

Just the facts...Athens GA trio Yip Deceiver arrived 2011 with a four song, self titled EP on Aerobic International. Originally a solo effort by Davey Pierce (Inkwell, of Montreal) the project grew to include Nicolas "Dobby" Dobbratz (Sugar & Gold, of Montreal) and John Swint (Modern Skirts, Easter Island). The duo version toured US, Europe, and Mexico releasing their debut album Medallius on New West Records in 2013. A split 7"single with Kishi Bashi and a 12" single with remixes by Willy Joy and Loose Shus followed on Aerobic International. The trio version went on to support Electric Six,
Turquoise Jeep, and of Montreal and eventually recorded a six song EP for New West Records which was manufactured but never released in 2015. After some time off from touring, the band returned to the studio to write and record new songs, some of which comprise the tracks for upcoming KONIEC EP. Yip Deceiver's records carry
disparate influences of punk, rock, r&b, and pop but are glued together by their unique production. As performers, they bring all the
elements to the table and commit to a powerful live show.
