With their eagerly-awaited new album set to land in the coming weeks, The Murder Capital have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Return My Head' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by the band's Gabriel Paschal Blake, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Ethel', 'A Thousand Lives', and 'Only Good Things' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Gigi's Recovery', which is out on the 20th January via Human Season Records.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman James McGovern said, “’Return My Head’ was written in a place of pure frustration, feeling like our sanity had been unwillingly removed through periods of isolation. All I wanted at this point was to get my head back, and to throw it away again. But on my own terms. ‘Return my head, and throw it to the crowd’.”
While director Blake added, “I wanted to show the rag dolling that can occur to us going from one state of being to another, while always remaining being the same person. The extensions of ourselves that we create to protect ourselves even when we’re alone, and the evident and necessary advice that we receive to continue following and perusing our passions from our friends and family, demonstrated by my own family friends Megan, Nic, Ruairí and Pump.
“To me, ‘Return My Head’ is the desire to return your mind to a place of peace and stability, and the belief that to do so, is possible. We shot it in my old secondary school recreational hall. We produced it ourselves. At its best to me, the narrative of the ‘Return My Head’ about coming back to a safety.”
