Conor Murphy, lead singer of the post-rock band Foxing, says that Dungeons and Dragons is his favourite thing in the world “because you get to be a voyeur to your friends, who are having this reawakening of their imaginations in front of you”. When I bring up Dungeons and Dragons, though, he gets audibly excited.
“I feel like I’ve only been able to talk about music in interviews for a long time,” he said over the phone. Foxing has a new album called Nearer My God coming out August 10, and he’s been talking to press about that, but he’d rather talk about roleplaying games. “This is the only thing I actually wanted to talk about,” he said.
