How would you describe your music?
I would describe Mount Mural as dreamy indie rock.
Tell us about how the history of the project?
It began as a singer-songwriter thing but quickly grew into a full band project. It started with Clayton writing a bunch of songs and bringing them to Kyle to produce. They fleshed out Clayton’s songs and brought in Tyler & Evan to add to it.
What are you influences/ musical heroes?
I think all of us have different influences and musical heroes.
What inspires you?
Creating art and being able to connect with people through that art.
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
Originally songs were written by one person in a bedroom. When we write together it’s in the studio & at practice.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
Probably ‘My Body is a Car’, due to the climax.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
Hmm, there are so many bands that we would love to tour with. Deerhunter would be a great one though.
What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
I think that it is always changing and that we are constantly finding ways to adapt to an ever changing industry. Things are a little different in the streaming era and I believe that it’s important to adapt and to understand how to be successful within this new environment. There are ups and downs to these changes. It’s hard to downplay how important it is that art remains accessible, but there are issues such as how artists are getting paid for their work.
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
We’re pretty new so there aren’t too many crazy stories yet, just your usual party stuff I guess. One time we did come across a chicken foot just outside a venue we’d just played. That was pretty strange.
What are your future plans?
We hope to continue making music together, playing shows and growing as musicians.
