Montero – Vibrations (Chapter Music)

Meet Ben Montero of Melbourne who is currently shacking up in Athens and by all appearances (from the music video anyway) having a whale of a time on the Mediterranean.

This storming tune has shades of Connan Mockasin and Tame Impala although imagined through MOR/soft rock rather than filthy funk or psych rock.

A quick perusal of his Facbook confirms the suspicion that this is the music of someone quite happy to proclaim love for the likes of Fleetwood Mac and REO Speedwagon.

Which in itself is a beautiful thing.

There’s also the small matter of a song which begins with a chorus especially one as good as this.

A lost art in pop music.

The sound of genius in the making I feel.
