Lasting less than four minutes, everyone’s talking about the YouTube video of a live version of The Murder Capital’s song More is Less.
It’s an urgent and determined post-punk political statement that goes down a storm in concert. It’s also where we heard the husky voice of James McGovern, fiery frontman of this Irish five-piece, for the first time. Back home in Dublin, the five musicians have a solid reputation for their live shows. Whether they’re headlining or supporting the likes of Slaves, Shame or Fontaines D. C., The Murder Capital provoke an instant reaction. While we wait for the storm, have a listen to their debut single, Feeling Fades, produced by the excellent Flood (PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, U2…).
