Dublin’s The Murder Capital have released their latest new single ‘Don’t Cling To Life’.
It’s the third track taken from and an anthemic highlight from their upcoming debut album and their much-lauded live performances.
Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all three singles from the band so far, ‘Feeling Fades’, ‘Green & Blue’ & ‘Don’t Cling To Life’, as well as the first studio recording of breakthrough track ‘More Is Less’.
Listen to ‘Don’t Cling To Life’ by The Murder Capital on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
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 them out as a band arriving fully formed on their debut album.
Praise for the Dublin punk outfit has come from a number of outlets, with So Young saying that “Immediately The Murder Capital emit a passion that will turn heads, but importantly they are a voice with something to shout about, and that could truly cement them as something to cherish.”, with the NME adding “The Murder Capital’s bolshy, violent sounding post-punk would make a fitting soundtrack to a city ten times more dangerous than the Irish capital.”
