Murmur are set to release their new single ‘I’m the Same’ on 2 April.
‘I’m the Same’ is the second single from the band’s highly anticipated EP – coming in summer 2021 and is sure to build on the considerable buzz already generated by the three piece.
Murmur has already garnered notable fans in Huw Stephens and Rob Adcock (BBC Introducing). This, matched with their live status has turned heads of bands such Husky Loops, Bloody Knees and LIFE showing the growth in Murmur’s reputation.
One band we’re predicting big things for is Murmur. It’s big, it’s heavy and you’ll go nutty for itHuw Stephens – BBC Introducing
I’m the Same’s narrative comes from a persons fear of becoming someone they’re not. Taking an unsettled approach to self-reflection swarmed by anthemic guitar lines. The main body of lyrical content is a confrontation, a visceral urge to acknowledge ones battle with adhering to the pressures of society, forever feeling flawed. A realisation that ones desire to become validated by strangers is jeopardising their identity and their ability to love themselves for who they truly are.
The band played notable and successful gigs at Y Not Festival and The Alternative/Great Escape (2017 – 2019); audience reaction has demonstrated a renewed fervor for alt guitar music across the UK. Hailing from East Staffordshire, the band has now settled in Brighton, a city with a healthy and rapidly expanding scene. Playing alongside talents LIFE and Husky loops, Murmur are an engaging and powerful contributor to the Brighton’s underground scene.
Huw Stephens from BBC Introducing is certainly a fan, he commented: “One band we’re predicting big things for is Murmur. It’s big, it’s heavy and you’ll go nutty for it.”
