LA duo Mont Blvck Release Stunning Alt-Pop EP ‘Lost Tapes’
LA duo Mont Blvck have returned with a brand new EP titled ‘Lost Tapes.’ True to the project’s title, the EP comes after a robbery- resulting in the loss of five years of music projects. ‘Lost Tapes’ is a collection of the records that made it through the incident – a new growth emerging from the loss.
Mont Blvck combines indie pop vocals and electronic synths with danceable drum patterns, creating a robust sonic experience comparable to Bob Moses. EP cut “Forget” evokes the bittersweet haze that exists between dreams and reality. The driving mechanical rhythm provides a bold and charismatic contrast to the lilting falsetto that lays a pop sheen over the top. The other “Lost Tapes” speak to the diversity of Mont Blvck’s influences, from the alt-pop of “Before The Day Ends” and “Change Of Color,” to the funky grooves of “Trouble,” and the more classic approach of “Caught At The Station.”
Comprised of Jackson Englund and Diego Cuevas, Mont Blvck’s ‘Lost Tapes’ comes after previous releases that received critical acclaim from tastemakers including Mixmag, Pete Tong (BBC) and Jason Bentley (KCRW)
