Flyte drummer Jon Supran produced Montrell’s upcoming EP ‘Angel’, and ‘Simpler In The Dark’ is the second track on the EP that has now been released! The single has got a simple message that has been packaged into an almost fragile folk-inspired singer songwriter song.
“I guess I can’t escape the fact that this single is about the desire to sleep with other people when you’re in a relationship, and the moral dilemma that follows that urge.” His delicate voice and the rather simple soundscape nearly bring its listener (not me…) to tears. Even though it is a subject that is rather upsetting as well as close to home for many, Montrell brings it sensitively and as open-hearted as anything I have heard so far.
Montrell: “Having written it as a solo artist I always envisaged releasing it with a band – you can hide behand a band. It was four years ago, so having come to terms with what it means to me, I’m now just really happy to share the song with our listeners.”
