FINALLY!! We’ve been desperately hanging on for news of a new album from The Murder Capital (including Dan who, as we all know, doesn’t even like new music!).

Now, fittingly, as Summer winds down and autumn announces itself, our much-missed ruminating Irishmen return to harness our souls. ‘Gigi’s Recovery’ is dominated by two forces: mood and melody. The mood is dense and atmospheric, with texture and colour at the forefront of the writing process as different layers are injected seamlessly into each song. The melody, in contrast, is intricate and intentional. The have chipped away at the black & white world of ‘When I Have Fears’ (a monochrome masterpiece) & have allowed themselves to erupt into the purple-heathered bloom of ‘Gigi’s Recovery’. “We had this slightly tongue-in-cheek mantra at the near-beginning of writing this record, it was - The evolution will not be compromised. This kept us on a course, even when we didn’t know where we were going”. And that’s exactly how The Murder Capital ended up with an album that is both totally pure and yet completely confident in its direction. ‘Gigi’s Recovery’ fills an entirely different space, an entirely new atmosphere to what came before. Existence fading Existence fading Existence Exist ↓ Existence changing Existence changing Existence Exist The Murder Capital’s first album ‘When I Have Fears’ had all its songs written and recorded within the first 9 months of the band knowing each other. Now, with ‘Gigi’s Recovery’, the band had to learn to navigate their personal relationships through the relationships they harnessed with these new songs. Without knowing what these songs would sound like, the band knew what they wanted them to feel like- and worked backwards from there- “We had this slightly tongue-in-cheek mantra at the near-beginning of writing this record, it was - The evolution will not be compromised. This kept us on a course, even when we didn’t know where we were going”. And that’s exactly how The Murder Capital ended up with an album that is both totally pure and yet completely confident in its direction.
