Focus: Taang | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed

Who are you and where are you from?
Taang is my creative alter ego. Those who know me personally, know me as Dancer.

What is it you do?
Rip off Seal. Not really. I make alternative pop music. 

How long have you been doing it?
Several years now. First submitted a demo to NARC. under a different name in 2013.

What inspires you?
All sorts; modern music culture; history of music and art; the fact that there are 13 Greggs stores within 1 mile of Grey’s Monument.

Tell us about your music.
Think The Rapture covered by Bonobo, or Toro Y Moi covered by Wild Beasts. But also nowt like any of that.

Taang is a solo output, but the live show will be a different beast with a host of North East musicians involved.

What have you got coming up in the future?
First Taang release, Stay Out, is out Wednesday 16th February. Got a mad animation to come for it made by the incredibly talented Molly Baldwin. Live shows and other releases all in the post.
