Of Montreal appeared at 9:30 Club recently for a different kind of show. You see, frontman Kevin Barnes fell in love. And with that, he’s been a bit more carefree, a bit more open, and a bit more himself. That inner self shined brightly at 9:30 Club, and Katherine Gaines captured this glory on film.
Not long ago, Kevin fell head over heels for songwriter Christina Schneider of Locate S,1. One of the results of this love is a recent 10-song electropop collection found in the new album, UR FUN, published via Polyvinyl Records.
The album collected rave reviews, including hitting No. 1 on college charts, because it has all of the wild and surreal vibes that of Montreal is known for while diving into new subjects — among those marriage and anxiety.
