South Korean-Australian artist Munan has a new single to share with us this week called ‘Mr. Taxi Driver’, which is another excellent example of the cruisy lo-fi/psychedelic-rock sound he’s been crafting.

Munan first began writing this song late last year after re-sampling the drums from one of his previous singles ‘Freak Like Me’, but then had to put everything on-hold for a while as he was forced to find another place to live and set up a whole new studio. Luckily, he has a great crew of creative friends who have been able to help him get this song right where it needed to be, and after a little time and perseverance he’s very satisfied with the result. 

“I wrote ‘Mr. TaxiDriver’ late last year after re-sampling the drums from my previous single‘Freak Like Me’ and made it more lo-fi with FX and tape saturations. I am a huge fan of creating songs with a variation of two chords and only a handful of instruments that have been manipulated and squashed into something gritty and colourful. With the help of my friends, we pieced together the song and added the main guitar riff that fits the theme of Mr. Taxi Driver at our friend’s studio.

Finally, with the magic of production, the lo-fi, hazy-psychedelic song that is now ‘Mr. Taxi Driver’ was made, but the song felt like it was still missing something. I then found some inspiration in the song ’Loretta’ by Ginger Root to add some saxophone sections. I visited my friend’s house where we took a few saxophones takes and decided it would be a cool idea to fade out slowly with the sax continuously playing until the end.” ~ Munan
