Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Angus Dawson

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Fresh from the release of his new single 'Pieces' this week, Perth based producer/singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Angus Dawson is continuing the momentum after a solid 2017 (which included the release of his EP Ellesmere Street, incredible live shows and a series of remixes). Angus took some time out to share some of his favourite tracks with us.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Love Is Only A Feeling' by The Darkness 
Man, I loved The Darkness as a kid. This was one of the first albums I ever owned. My brother and used to play along to this track together. It was great.

What song would you love to sample?
'Breakthrough' by Isaac Hayes
Listen to the beat of this track. Absolute beast.

What song do you have on repeat right now?
'On The Nature Of Daylight' by Max Richter 
I find myself listening to a lot of contemporary classical stuff these days, this one is an absolute stunner. This is the kind of music I can see myself making in 10 years or so.

What song reminds you of your last holiday?
'Superfly' by Raury 
This track was on repeat when I travelled around Europe with my girlfriend a few years ago (clearly we don’t holiday enough), still reminds me of the Swiss Alps.

What song do you wish you collaborated on? 
'I Need A Forest Fire' by James Blake (ft. Bon Iver)
Two of my heroes on the one track, I’d probably have no input but to be in the same room as these two would be a special day I reckon.

What song would you love to cover live? 
'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen
I mean, I think we all would.
