Following on from the release of their stunning 2019 debut LP 'When I Have Fears', The Murder Capital have now returned to share a brand new single.
The new track 'Only Good Things' marks their first piece of new material since their initial full-length, and is said to be the beginning of a new phase for the group.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman James McGovern said, "This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colourful. 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."
