Have you heard of Montaigne yet? You’ve probably heard her on the radio if you’re a triple j listener. The 19-year-old came on to the scene earlier this year with her two debut singles, I’m a Fantastic Wreck and I Am Not an End. Her unique melodies, style and overall personality is the kind that balances quirkiness with talent, fun with maturity well beyond her 19 years.
Anyway, Montaigne, also known to some as Sydney-based Jessica Cerro headed over to triple j last week so for Like a Version. She covered Sia’s Chandelier, a belter of a pop tune that is not for the faint of heart.
Luckily, Montaigne KILLED it. Easily one of the best all year. Listen here:
Montaigne’s debut EP Life of Montaigne came out last week too, and I highly recommend grabbing a copy for yourself.
