Of Montreal

Biography

Of Montreal (stylized as of Montreal) is an American rock band from Athens, Georgia. It was founded by frontman Kevin Barnes in 1996, named after a failed romance between Barnes and a woman "of Montreal." The band is identified as part of the Elephant 6 collective. Throughout its existence, of Montreal's musical style has evolved from vaudevillian late 60s influenced by many of the late '60s psychedelic pop epics; including: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society and Brian Wilson's "SMiLE" to a more diverse mixture of electronica, funk, glam, and afrobeat music influenced by Prince, Talking Heads, Queen, Os Mutantes and David Bowie.
