of Montreal – 4/5/19
of Montreal with Yip Deceiver (featuring of Montreal members) & Haute Tension @ The Ground at Club Space in Miami.
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.

Born and raised in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with. Growing up in the mecca of hip-hop culture, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. In high school, they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles. After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. Tired of working boring grocery store jobs, Amiri and Rah started performing Beatles covers on the NYC subway, earning some pocket change, slowly building a reputation around the city while also performing their original material in New York’s best venues for up and coming acts. On December 23rd, 2017, the band released their debut self-titled EP, which was also self-recorded and self-mixed. On January 26th, 2018, Rah and Amiri were filmed performing Beatles songs on the train by New York Nico, the “Unofficial talent scout of New York City,” who posted the video to his 120K+ followers on Instagram. One of the videos went viral generating over 25M streams, leading to numerous TV and Radio appearances, including The Ellen Degeneres Show. The band also recorded a cover of “Michelle” by The Beatles for a Gucci ad campaign featuring Harry Styles. Meanwhile, Blac Rabbit’s fan base has increased significantly while they have been touring globally and recording their debut full-length album, set for release early 2019.
