Cellar Darling is the new kid on the block out of Switzerland, but it’s members have a long reputation behind themselves as musicians. ‘This is the Sound’ (Read Our Review Here) is the result of the combined efforts of ex-Eluveitie members Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter.
Metal Wani’s Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi and Tanushree Chatterjee had a quick chat with CELLAR DARLING vocalist and hurdy-gurdy player Anna Murphy.
She talks about her currently released songs of the upcoming album “This Is The Sound” and the ideas that went behind their production; including the usage of the various instruments as well as her ideas on how the folk genre of the songs played into the lyrics.
She also discusses the changes that she experienced from her Eluveitie days and how moving from being one of the singers of the band to being the main vocalist has affected her songwriting style as well as the musical arrangements that have been inculcated into the record by Merlin, Ivo and her.
She also spoke about her thoughts on whether or not taking a break after the members’ Eluveitie stint would have been a good idea and also their current performances as well as future touring possibilities and her plans to re-visit India.
