Of Montreal

Of Montreal is an indie pop Elephant 6 band from Athens, GA, led by Kevin Barnes. It is one of the only Elephant 6 bands that is still producing new albums, perhaps because of Barnes’ adaptability from playing Beatlesque-type music in the 1990s to electronic glam indie rock in later years.

Barnes is famous for being an expert showman and his flamboyant costumes.  Of Montreal also became famous (and lost their hipster cred) when their song, “Wraith Pinned to the Mist” became the new Outback Steakhouse song, and “Let’s pretend we don’t exist, let’s pretend we’re in Antarctica” became “Let’s go Outback tonight, life will still be here tomorrow”.
