Serving in the US Navy as a real-life Air Traffic Controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home 4-track demos he had written and recorded during his deployment. With his enlistment up, Munro returned to hometown Boston and discovered an impressive number of fans, prompting the genesis of the aptly-named rock band Air Traffic Controller.
Consisting of six band members and a multitude of instrumentation, Air Traffic Controller are about to introduce their quirky indie pop to the UK for the first time with the release of their infectious single 'Hurry Hurry', taken from their much acclaimed second album 'NORDO'.
Produced by one of Munro's favourite music producers, Bleu, 'Hurry Hurry' is a tale that everyone can relate to depicting the day-to-day rush through life, often forgetting what is really important. As Munro states in his fast-paced, autobiographical, storytelling lyrics reminiscent of the likes of Paul Simon and Cat Stevens:
"I hurried when I should've been in the zone, I hurried my loved ones off the phone, I hurried through sex - I know I know, I hurried my quiet time alone."
Air Traffic Controller's incredible 'NORDO' album is scheduled for a UK release in early 2014. Until then, see them live as they make their debut live shows this November at the following dates:
26th November- Buffalo Bar, Highbury & Islington
29th November - Dublin Castle, Camden
Air Traffic Controller is:
Dave Munro - lead vocals and guitar
