Dublin’s The Murder Capital recently brought their angular take on post-punk to Aarhus, Denmark on the Scandinavian leg of their tour supporting their debut full-length ‘When I Have Fears’. Whilst there, the lads had time to drop by Tapetown Studio and let loose a blistering version of For Everything, the opening track from the universally acclaimed album.
‘When I Have Fears’ was produced by legendary rock producer, Flood (Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, New Order just to name a few) and was hardly a slick pop production. However, the band’s live shows continue to expand on their recorded material and lay bare, sliced and exposed to the audience, as this live-in-studio shows.
This performance is for Tapetown Sessions, a platform for passing through Aarhus, Denmark to come in and perform live in a studio setting. Tapetown is a fully-functional recording studio that focuses specifically on alternative music. The “live in studio” sessions showcase the artists, warts ‘n’ all in exactly the way nature intended – no overdubs or magic tricks. Rasmus Bredvig, oversees the production with professional multi-track, real-time recording and mixing after the sessions are done. The tracks are simultaneously filmed multi-angle and edited together with properly mastered audio.
The Murder Capital are not to be missed in a live setting. They will return to Dublin on 27th February with a headline slot at Vicar Street, and will play at Forbidden Fruit Festival at Royal Hospital Kilmainham.
