The Murder Capital

London Calling 2019, Friday

THE MURDER CAPITAL

Hailing from all corners of Ireland, The Murder Capital are a post-punk band driven by the desire to affect cultural change. If you have ever seen The Murder Capital live then what will strike you most about the experience is not the heaviness, the bleakness or the rage you might expect, but witnessing a most extreme vision of tenderness. Their debut album, ‘When I Have Fears’, recorded over the Spring with Flood (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, New Order etc.), embodies this tenderness; it is a purple bruise on the hard knee of the so-called post-punk resurgence.
