Check out his soft rock odyssey...
Montero (Credit: Maria Damkalidi)

Montero is an Australian artist based in Athens, someone whose work as an illustrator reaches an audience of millions.

With an imagination sitting slightly askew from the norm, Montero's world view flits between acerbic outsider the nonsensical, gleefully playing with expectations.

Taking this approach into music, new album 'Performer' will be released on February 2nd through Chapter Music.

Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Tokin' The Night Away' and it's a blissed out soft rock odyssey, somewhere between Steely Dan and Mac DeMarco.

The video comes replete with animated illustrations from Montero himself, and you can check it out below.

Montero is set to play the The Shacklewell Arms, London on November 15th. Catch the songwriter supporting Mac DeMarco at the following shows:
