MURDERERS - Inked A Deal With AnalogueTrash, First Single Out In December

Manchester (UK) based post-punk/synthwave project Murderers has recently signed a record deal with AnalogueTrash label, and will release the debut single "Sleep" on 4th of December. A short video teaser has been now released and you can hear it in the player below.

Murderers is Manchester-based game developer/ex-physicist/human Luke Thompson. Sonically, Murderers is the product of various musical directions suddenly snapping into place to form a cohesive, organic whole. Disparate influences across genres melt into warm, dark, fuzzy but melodic soundscapes. The synthpop sounds of John Maus join harder synthwave influences, with the melancholy of The National set against vocals inspired by new romantic and post-punk.

First up for public consumption is the track "Sleep". Luke talks about the genesis of the track: "Musically, this was one of those songs where the key parts spring into your mind almost fully formed. A chorus suddenly existed in my head and the rest largely wrote itself from there; it almost feels like it's not really mine. It's better for that - catchy, but melodically and rhythmically less obvious. The lyrics are quite pointed for me. They allude - through a personal framing - to themes of empathy, othering and the fetishisation of personal responsibility. But what it boils down to is, maybe don't put children in fucking cages."

"Sleep" is the first single from the Tape One EP, due for release in early 2021. The track will be available on the 4th of December via AnalogueTrash on all major streaming and download services. Link
