A Distant Light

by Montano

Solar Sail 15:27


A Distant Light is music shaped by the coastlines of New Zealand. NZ-based Montano are Michael Upton and Shanan Holm who together work with synths, field recordings and guitar, to craft slowly evolving works where small surprises and idiosyncrasies bubble to the surface, dissipate and return. This is an album which crafts a space for stepping back and slowing down. It asks for concentrated listening, and rewards you with shimmering dreams carved from liquid time.


released July 3, 2020

Written and produced by Shanan Holm and Michael Upton
