Gold Coast native and the latest signing to Aussie indie label ‘I Oh You’ Montgomery has just released a beautiful video clip for her single ‘Not Around’ taken from EP titled New Clear War released last year.
The song has an eighties feel to it without being a homage to the era, which is a breath of fresh air given the amount of blatant eighties revival currently being released. Tinges of M83 and Purity Ring influences can be heard throughout the track, however it’s a pretty solid original effort from the singer/songwriter/producer.
Shot in the Praga district of Warsaw (Poland) the video follows a slightly vague plot. It would appear that Montgomery and a ghost of herself are wondering around a melancholic somewhat deserted part of Warsaw. Accompanying them is an ex-lover of sorts. The film has a wonderful vintage feel to it, as it was shot on Kodak Super 16mm film which gives the clip the really cold and barron feel Director Jessica Lawton was searching for.
‘Not Around’ is a really solid pop song, its structured, well produced and easy on the ears. This one could pick up some major airplay in the coming months
