Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features both singles from the band so far, "Feeling Fades" and "Green & Blue", as well as the first studio recording of breakthrough track "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.
STAFF COMMENTSBarry says: The Murder Capital are a perfect storm of gloomy existential post-punk and hypnotic punk drive. Swaggering through the more industrial, cavernous atmospheres of Joy Division or the chanting spoken-word drawl of Mark E., there is a lot for Manchester to love in this one. Brilliant stuff.
