The Murder Capital have unleashed their debut track ‘Feeling Fades’. After riding a wave of hype since their attention grabbing SOMA session last year, the Irish quintet have delivered the goods with their first studio release. 

A brooding beat and a menacing bassline compliment singer James McGovern’s seething delivery of lyrics like, “The creeping sounds of children ring to curling toes this spring,” cementing an exciting beginning to the band’s trajectory. Listen to ‘Feeling Fades’ below;
