Beatie Wolfe’s second album Montagu Square was recorded at 34 Montagu Square - the former home and secret studio of Hendrix, Ringo, McCartney, Lennon & Yoko Ono - and in the room where McCartney wrote ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and Hendrix penned ‘The Wind Cries Mary’. The music of Montagu Square has been described as chamber pop, reflecting the spirit of the flat's inhabitants, with 'Take Me Home' (a William Blake inspired love ballad) being a standout track.
Montagu Square received positive reviews with The Independent newspaper calling the album "absolutely gorgeous" and praising Wolfe for being a "pioneering songwriter", Forbes calling it "extraordinary," The Huffington Post highlighting its "strong percussive sound with a bluesy overtone" and praising its "refreshingly low fi and honest" sound and Monocle Magazine describing the album as: "pure and simple; a short, sharp flip-it-over-and-listen-again LP of well-made, expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop."
Following Montagu Square's release, Wolfe was nominated for Google Play Music's "Best Digital Artist" alongside the 1975.
