An Interview with Angus Munro

IMG_5191Hello Angus, so where ya from & where ya at, geographically speaking?
I’m originally from London and I live in Edinburgh.

When did you first realise you were musical?
Probably being told off for playing the xylophone too loud and too much during a Nativity play at primary school.

You have something of a multi-faceted 4-octave vocal range that can break glass. Is this natural or has it taken some training?
A mixture of both I think. I’ve always been able to hit high notes but it’s a muscle and an instrument like any other that requires practice and proper care.

The Mumble has just got your EP, Mirror Man. Where & how was it recorded?
The band and I recorded it with Tony Doogan at Castle of Doom in Finneston, Glasgow over a couple of months.

Can you give us a brief outline as to the contents?
I wanted to write a record that explored the different ways we can deal with loss, be they productive and helpful or self-destructive.

What does Angus Munro like to do when he’s not being musical?
I’m big into fantasy books and am currently reading The Lady of The Lake by Andrzej Sapkowski. I’m also a fan of podcasts – true crime ones in particular.

What for you makes a good song?
Personally, I really go for a song that get’s to the chorus within the first 30 seconds of a track. If something is well written lyrically and melodically and you can tell that a lot of care has gone into it, that’s a winner right there.

You’re just about to play the Hug and Pint in Glasgow on Wednesday 28th June & at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on Thursday 29th June. It it easy to transfer the studio sound into live performance?
These songs started out live months before we took them into the studio so it’s certainly easier than working the other way around.

What does the rest of 2017 hold in store Angus Munro?
I’m playing Mugstock Festival on 28th July and am planning to go back into the studio at the end of the year. Before that happens though, I’ll be gigging a lot with the band so keep an eye out for shows later in the year!
