THE MURLOCS - "Young Blindness" Album Tour

8:00pm, Thu 14 April, 2016

Event Details

Tight-knit garage R&B outfit The Murlocs have unveiled Young Blindness, their second full-length LP out Friday 18 March via Flightless / Remote Control Records.

In addition, the band have shared their latest cut from the record, 'Compensation' which premiered on Richard Kingsmill's 2016 last Sunday. Catch the band performing the new LP on their national album tour hitting Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney this March and April.

Featuring the rollicking cuts 'Adolescence' and 'Rolling On', plus the just-released single'Compensation', Young Blindness showcases a growth forged by a steadfast touring ethos across Australia - including a barnstorming appearance at Boogie Festival, plus support duties acts such asMac DeMarco and Thee Oh Sees.

The Murlocs
will be performing in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. Lucky Melbourne punters will be treated to 0.99c beers at both shows! Stay blind kiddies.

Young Blindness follows The Murlocs' 2014 debut LP Loopholes, building upon a solid foundation of distorted licks and melodic intuition. The hearty compositions are emboldened by the distinct vocal tremolo of singer Ambrose Kenny-Smith, soaring to impressive heights on tracks such as 'Think Out Loud' and title track 'Young Blindness'.

Lyrically, Young Blindness delves itself into an introspective vision while exerting riff-laden swagger. Themes of young paranoia and self-doubt are viewed through a lens of experience, exploring the blurred meeting point with an air of blues-borne world-weariness.

Since forming in Victoria's surf coast in 2011, The Murlocs have established themselves as a dynamic presence on stages throughout the country - entrenched within the prolific Flightless Records stable alongside King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard (who Ambrose + Cook also perform in), The Babe Rainbow, ORB and more.

After launching Young Blindness, The Murlocs will go on to make their US live debut at the 2016 Levitation Festival, headlined by Ween, 13th Floor Elevators, and Brian Wilson.
