For fans of Circa Waves, The Courteeners, The Enemy,
The Strokes. Q&A with Kelly Munro
Tell us how long you’ve been making music?
“Collectively as Idle Noise we’ve been making music for the last four or so years, individually a lot longer.”
What’s been some of your highlights so far on your musical journey?
“Selling out Manchester ‘Deaf Institute’ in January 2020, shortly after supporting The Enemy’s Tom Clarke’s sold out hometown show in December 2019.”
Your single is called ‘Ghosts’. Have you ever seen one?
“Ben (frontman) sees Dead People.”
Tell us more about the single. Is there a story attached to it?
“‘Ghosts’ is a track relating to a long distance relationship that eventual crumbled. Hence the “too far to hear me, too far to listen”and “harder, together’ in the chorus.
We think it’s our best work yet, and hope everyone likes it as much as we do.”
What albums do you never get tired of listening to?…
…”Courteeners – St Jude, Sound of Guns – Angels and Enemies, The Twang – Jewellery Quarter”
What can we expect from you this year?
“Potentially another single release later in the year and we’re hoping to get some shows sorted.
We’ve got three lined up September through to December but it’s all a question of whether they’ll still be going ahead. We’re struggling to book anything ‘cos nobody really knows what’s happening at the minute. We just can’t wait to get out and play on stage again.”
Thank you, Idle Noise. Have a listen to ‘Ghost’ which is out now on all main platforms, that’s the spirit! https://outnow.io/t/idlenoise
