The Murder Capital share new video for ‘Crying

The band are due to go on their biggest UK/EU tour to date.

The Murder Capital have released a new video for ‘Crying’; the song is taken off their recent album, ‘Gigi’s Recovery’.

The video was directed by Cathal ‘Pump’ Roper, who says: “Early on, Crying solidified itself as a track that steered the direction of the record.

“Crying was birthed in the surreal, from the art we were consuming and the environment that was summer 2020. When that direction was revealing itself, so were the first accessible A.I. visual generators.

“Something about nature depicted in this fashion, captured what inspired us in our pursuit towards a more textured and mosaic approach. I continued to picture these distorted hills and compressed waves as the track developed. So when it was discussed that it wouldn’t be a single, I made a point of making a video myself to portray what I’d been seeing the whole time.”

Vocalist James McGovern also shared some details about the song itself: “The greatest determination I’ve found is in the love of a true friendship. The meaning behind Crying is quite literally about holding onto that connection for dear life, whether yours or a friend’s. When your friend needs you, you gotta be there for them. No hesitation. No matter what.”
