The video was directed by Pump from the band, who said:

“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.”

Singer James says of the song:

“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.”

2023 has been a breakout year for The Murder Capital. Alongside ‘Gigi’s Recovery’, they played a 16-date US tour, as well as appearing at Coachella for the first time. The band recently headlined The Great Escape in Brighton, and this summer have a packed schedule with over thirty festival performances including Glastonbury, Primavera, Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Electric Picnic and End Of The Road.
