‘Do You Say Hello To Your Neighbours?’ / ‘Honeymoon’ is the double A-side debut single by the latest additions to the Lost Map family, Glasgow-based purveyors of scuzzy slacker guitar pop Savage Mansion. It will be released as a PostMap postcard single on May 26, 2017. The suitably homemade video for ‘Do You Say Hello To Your Neighbours?’ is available to stream and share now. The band will launch the single with a headline show at The Hug and Pint in Glasgow on Friday, May 26, with support from Mush and Vital Idles.

Savage Mansion is essentially a vehicle for the songs of Perth-raised singer and guitarist Craig Angus, elsewhere featuring a revolving cast of musicians that typically includes Taylor Stewart on drums and Andrew McPherson and Jamie Dubber from Catholic Action on second guitar and bass. Craig was previously in a band called Poor Things, and also plays guitar with Martha Ffion, whose single ‘No Applause’ / ‘Lead Balloon’ was previously released as a PostMap postcard on Lost Map. Craig made his debut under the Savage Mansion name last year with a cassette tape EP released through Aberdeen label Cool Yr Jets.

Slices of heavily Steve Malkmus-influenced slanted melodic guitar music each, ‘Do You Say Hello To YourNeighbours?’ and ‘Honeymoon’ were recorded with Suse Bear from Tuff Love producing. Of the inspiration for the former track, Craig says: “I met my childhood neighbour for a pint last year and the next day I had the hook bit in my head, and I could kinda hear the chords too, it was a bit of a gift really. I think that song is about changing communities, I think people know each other less in suburban neighbourhoods than they used to, because it’s become so easy to communicate long distances online, or on your mobile. I remember knowing all my neighbours as a wee guy, four doors up and down, I’m not sure it’s the same anymore.”

Of the inspiration for ‘Honeymoon’, Craig states more simply that it’s about “breaking your leg halfway across the world, and then watching lots of episodes of US crime drama ‘The Practice’.”
