murmurmur – ‘Marmalade’
Melbourne five-piece murmurmur pack a punch with their new single ‘Marmalade’.
Following their debut track, ‘Cable Car’, murmurmur have released ‘Marmalade’ ahead of release of the self-titled EP. With instantly infectious melodies and guitar riffs, ‘Marmalade’ is comparable to Manic Street Preachers’ indie anthems such as ‘Kevin Carter’ and ‘Your Love Alone Is Not Enough’. murmurmur may also appeal to fans of Tame Impala and Sundara Karma too. It’s 80s style jangley psychedelic pop rock without being dreary or pretentious. William Fletcher’s vocals are soft and tender without being soppy and the guitars are clean and crisp with plenty of beef. ‘Marmalade’ ends with a great piece of heavy riffing that brings the song to a satisfying climax. You can tell the band are really going for it here with everything they’ve got.
‘Marmalade’ an interesting blend of pop and hard rock that murmurmur master beautifully. This will appeal to all fans of pop and rock. And it’s hard to believe they do all of this in three minutes.
