The Murder Capital Presented with IMRO No.1 Award

December 20, 2019

IMRO this week met with The Murder Capital to present them with their IMRO Award in recognition of their album ‘When I Have Fears’, which reached No.1 on the Independent Chart in August.

The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.

Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals), ‘When I Have Fears’ features all four singles from the band so far, ‘Feeling Fades’, ‘Green & Blue’ & ‘Don’t Cling To Life’ and ‘More Is Less’

An exercise in both darkness and light, ‘When I Have Fears’ only serves to highlight the early ambition in the band’s sound. From the post-rock build and breakdowns of the two-part ‘Slowdance’, to the tender, bruised confessional of ‘On Twisted Ground’ and industrial pulse of closer ‘Love, Love, Love’, there’s a consistent intensity throughout that marks out The Murder Capital as a band arriving fully formed on their debut album.
