Rising star Montaigne to headline Raw Sounds festival

SYDNEY based avant-pop heroine Montaigne will perform at an all-ages concert at Raw Sounds Music Festival.

Montaigne first caught our attention as a Triple J Unearthed High finalist in 2012 before taking a hiatus to complete her High School Certificate.

The past year has been a momentous one for the teenager who re-acquainted herself with Australia after releasing her debut single I Am Not An End, which was Triple J's 36th most played song of the year.

The Raw Sounds Festival, now in its fifth year, is an all-ages family friendly event originally created as a live music event specifically for those aged 12 to 25 and allows local artists to showcase their talent.

Montaigne's new single Clip My Wings was co-written, produced and mixed by Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Andy Bull) and recorded at Albert Studios, and was about the value of autonomy and standing up for what you believe in.

Clip My Wings was about attempting to push back against oppressors, she said.

"I am resilient and have become more self- confident," Montaigne said.

"I am less afraid to stand up for myself and my self-belief and I am expressing that through this song," she said.

Supporting artists at the festival include local bands Fieu, Dear Willow, Indica and Taylor Payne.
