Jazz trained M’GOO tap into various genres, accessing a range of moods to form their single ‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”’, inspired by a true story by Glynn Washington from Snap Judgement. Following theme of “do we ever really know the person we love?”, the single forms a fascinating conversation incorporating poetry and visual art.
M’GOO have an entirely unique composing method whereby vocalist and composer Mike Meighu finds inspiring true storylines, poetry and philosophical material to inspire him. He then scores the music and strips everything back, except from the basic musical structures. The band then re-writes the music from a fresh perspective, exploring a descriptive feeling and scenario. The unique writing and recording process gives M’GOO an improvisational live style, with strong elements of jazz, rock and pop.
‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”’ follows the story of a couple due to be wed but once they visit a fortune teller their relationship falls apart. The captivating single taken from their upcoming concept album ‘LOVE AND ALL THAT _ _ _ _’ is also due to be released with a discussion podcast and video art.
