When this writer sat down with The Murder Capital back in February, it was immediately apparent that a sense of patronage for home permeates in the music of this group from all over the Emerald Isle.
‘Green and Blue’, their new single, embraces this idea at its most foundational value, feeling the connection with the land and the sea of home and realigning those who have perhaps lost such through the struggle of day to day life.
Compelled by ricocheting drums and striking, wayward guitar, James McGovern casts an image of two personalities, one the foreboding conductor that looms as the bell tolls, the other a stricken and tortured soul strengthened only by determination and heart. A striking moment built on human connection, it presents The Murder Capital as a wholly forthright and encompassing proposition.
