Today, Dublin's The Murder Capital have shared a new video for 'More Is Less' - the live version of which went viral and forged the band's breakthrough last year. The video follows the release of their debut album 'When I Have Fears' in August, which reached a Top 20 chart position in the UK, and a #2 position in their native 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.
