Ottawa singer, Claude Munson, has released his second album, The Silence Came After, last month.
The album was produced by Scattered Clouds’ Phillippe Charbonneau and engineered by Sebastian Perry. From what we can say is that Claude Munson wrote “uninhibited impressionist-folk. The Silence Came After is equal parts of lush and spare, marrying the naked soul of 70’s era Neil Young, with Talk Talk’s spacious expressionism, and Krautrock’s motoric rhythms.”
Munson gives a mysterious vibe, but his music leaves an impression with washed-out synth and hazy vocal reverb that leaves his music borderline of folk and electronic vibes. The album’s leading single is “Broken Stairs”.
“The song (“Broken Stairs”) is a song about wanting to run away but not really having anywhere else to go. I’m singing about questioning my past and reflecting on mistakes I made. As that happens, I begin to feel the need to break out and escape reality. In that state I ask myself to be aware of the people around me and myself. It is a personal lesson about the enticement of love and detaching yourself from love when it does not prevail.” Says Munson.
The Silence Came After is on SoundCloud for all listening pleasures and Claude Munson is going on tour in Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto to celebrate the release!
