Indie, Folk, Rock
Angus McOg was born as the alter ego of Antonio Tavoni, from Modena. The project took shape during the weeks spent in Australia, living at a friend’s house in Sydney in the summer of 2009. Two years later Anorak, the first self-produced album, was released, followed in 2013 by the second work Arnaut. Meanwhile Angus McOg, as well as in Italy, has the opportunity to play also in France, England and the United States. He signs the music for “Aishiteru My Love”, a feature film by director Stefano Cattini presented at the 2013 edition of the Festival dei Popoli in Florence. The following year Angus McOg was chosen by Thurston Moore to open the Italian dates of his The Best Day tour, at the Alcatraz in Milan and at the Teatro dell’Antoniano in Bologna. He then collaborates with Luca Di Mira (Giardini di Mirò) for the soundtrack of “Regen”, a 1929 short film by Dutch director Joris Ivens. Together with Luca Di Miraprende himself he forms the new formation that begins to arrange the material for the new album, Beginners, which comes out in 2018 in Italy and the UK and sees the band return to tread the stage with a new lineup.
