Listen to Montaigne’s gorgeous new song ‘Clip My Wings’

Sydney-based popstrel Montaigne has just released her metaphorically-avian single entitled Clip My Wings. Co-written, produced and mixed by Tony Buchen (who’s worked with the likes of Andy Bull and The Preatures), the track was recorded at Albert Studios.

Clip My Wings is Montaigne’s song about the value of being independent and standing up for what you believe in. The track starts off strong, with a burst of acoustic guitar before Montaigne strong voice calls out in exasperation. It’s a bigger and more lavish sound than what we’ve heard from the singer so far, who last year released her gorgeous debut EP Life of Montaigne. The dramatic melody is unfailingly catchy, and we’re excited to see what’s next for the young artist. 

Speaking of her new track, Montaigne said that the song:

“Clip My Wings is about attempting to push back against your oppressors,” explains Montaigne.  “I am resilient and have become more self-confident, I am less afraid to stand up for myself and my self-belief and I am expressing that through this song.”

Have a listen to the track below:

She’s supported big homegrown aussie acts like San Cisco, Megan Washington and Japanese Wallpaper, embarked on a sold-out national headline run and made coveted appearances at Groovin’ the Moo and Come Together festival. Now, Montaigne and her band (Neil Anderson on keys, Gus Gardener on bass and Miles Thomas drums) will be hitting the road, touring some of their biggest venues yet, throughout October and November.
