The Murder Capital are currently sitting at No. 6 on the UK Charts and No. 1 in Ireland.
Today, The Murder Capital have shared a new live video for their BBC 6 Music B-listed single "Don't Cling To Life." The video follows the release of their debut album When I Have Fears last Friday, which is currently heading for a top 10 chart position in the UK, and a no.1 position in Ireland.
Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all four singles from the band so far, 'Feeling Fades', 'Green & Blue', 'Don't Cling To Life' and 'More Is Less'.
An exercise in both darkness and light, When I Have Fears only serves to highlight the early ambition in the band's sound. From the post-rock build and breakdowns of the two-part "Slowdance", to the tender, bruised confessional of "On Twisted Ground" and industrial pulse of closer "Love, Love, Love", there's a consistent intensity throughout that marks out The Murder Capital as a band arriving fully formed on their debut album. We caught up with James McGovern in the last issue of Hot Press to talk about the process of making their debut album. Read our full interview with here.
Currently sitting at No. 6 in the UK Charts and No. 1 in Ireland, The Murder Capital could be on their way to making history for themselves this Friday. Their debut album has received widespread critical acclaim on both sides of the Irish Sea. You can buy it here.
