The Murder Capital Return With New Single ‘Only Good Things’

"At it's core, it's a love song..."

The Murder Capital have shared new single ‘Only Good Things’.

The Irish band’s excellent debut album ‘When I Have Fears’ won across the board critical praise, while their potent live shows saw an 18 month trans-Atlantic run result in feverish crowds.

Heading back into the studio, The Murder Capital burst out of the traps with new single ‘Only Good Things’. Recently opening for Pearl Jam in Hyde Park, the band tap into their live energy on this biting, bustling return.

Sharp-edged indie rock with a post-punk slant, there’s an urgent openness to The Murder Capital on this track, one that bodes well for future plans.

Frontman James McGovern says…

“This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colorful. This is a part of the narrative of the overall record that we feel reaches a real place of inner calm, inner peace but at its core, it’s a love song.”

You get a song like this where, the protagonist in this song is quite simply asking – not pleading – just willing to ask their counterpart to rid them of their intrusive thoughts, the devils on their shoulders and to be truly vulnerable.”

“We’re so excited to go to a place like this because perhaps it’s not what is expected of us. It stood out to me during the creation of this record that it is more about the friends that are still here and celebrating those connections, those relationships and being unafraid of life and it’s many seasons. Where ‘Only Good Things’ stands within the record is at a moment where the sonic and the lyrical narrative especially, are of newfound joy.”
