MontaigneThe Sydney-based artist has become an important figure on the Aussie indie scene, receiving widespread praise for their work including an ARIA award for Best Breakthrough Artist.
A natural storyteller and entertainer, the multi-talented Montaigne has never wavered on the delivery of a unique artistry that has seen the Sydneysider ascend from young indie leader, to one of Australia’s most individual and dynamic voices.
Technicolour explores the human need to be close to one another, and was written and produced specifically with Eurovision in mind.
“I initially started writing the song after a catch-up call with my mum that was really emotional and had me crying on the floor thinking of that first line, ‘I want to be close to my mother.’ The song became about resilience and the courage that comes from being able to be vulnerable, being able to ask for help, and knowing that in solidarity and togetherness we are stronger as people."
While the pandemic may have halted live gigs and performances (not to mention the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest that Montaigne was originally due to compete in) the singer has used lockdown time to throw themselve back into their craft, ready to re-emerge in 2021 more than prepared for what’s set to be their strongest chapter yet.
Please note: In May 2023, Montaigne announced that they are non-binary, and use the pronouns 'they/them'. Eurovision.tv has updated participant profiles accordingly, but some inaccurate references may remain while we update past articles.
