Sun soaked with genuine country nostalgia, The Mountains blur the lines between surf, folk and country to deliver well-rounded warm tunes reminiscent of the golden age of country music with their own Australiana flavour added for good measure.

The Sydney four-piece, made up of longtime friends Peter Avard, Josh Piltz, Aaron (Biggie) Ballentyne and Matty Took, exhibits a laidback approach to songwriting, taking in inspiration from beach towns and rolling hills. Lead singer Pete has the ability to take you to a coastal town and back again all within a nicely arranged pop song.

wp-The-Mountains-01The last twelve months have seen the band support local and international acts such as Justin Townes Earle, The Rubens, Delta Riggs and Ruby Boots. The boys then hit the studio with producer WILLSON in the summer of 2012/13 to record their Country Doors EP out later this year, which features lead single Loose Jaw, a finger-picking, foot-stomping hoedown of a track and the first to showcase Matty Took’s Banjo and harmonies.

You can see them this Friday at the Treehouse on Belongil – Byron Bay.
