Montpelier, a band from Brisbane, Australia, have found a way to write rather upbeat pop songs about serious matters. Their latest single Last Boat is about coping with OCD. Singer Greg Chiapello was diagnosed as such as a teenager. Smart indie-op guitar, straightforward keys and a hook-filled chorus that should scare his inner demons. The track serves as the forerunner for a new EP that will be released in April.
Last Boat can be downloaded for free from the band's website.
