The Mountainous is an Experimental Ambient Post-Rock band formed as a collaboration between guitarist Jacob Bennett and composer/programmer Kody Gautier (K. Gautier). Former college roommates, the two found a unique bond in sharing their common musicality. Coming from cinematic, folk, and instrumental backgrounds, their long-distance collaboration has resulted in a collection of songs that challenge the limits of genre and song-writing. Following their guitar heavy debut EP, "Here is Repose", the duo released their newest single, "Visions", which is accompanied by a beautiful short film directed by Johnny Weichel. With "Visions", Jacob and Kody aimed to create a more lighthearted and fresh sonic environment, introducing driving acoustic guitars and vocal elements, as well as more prominent synth, to construct a dynamic yet cohesive song structure.
The Mountainous will release their second EP, "Before the World Existed", Fall of 2018.
