The Murder Capital release ‘Ethel’ – third single & video from new album Gigi’s Recovery


The Dublin rock band The Murder Capital have released the third song from their upcoming album Gigi’s Recovery.

Following on from the Britpop-leaning ‘Only Good Things’ and ‘A Thousand Lives’ which had more of a Radiohead feel, the band have released ‘Ethel’ and a music video by Maxim Kelly.

“The song ‘Ethel’ is a picture of a crossroads, really, asking you what you want from life. Whether you want to continue down a path of chaos, or make a change in your course. It’s showing you what is possible when you make the decisions that bring a sort of cradled warmth into your future. The idea of ‘Ethel’ is that you can have what you truly desire if you put to rest those short-lived fixes that never bring you any real happiness.”

The Murder Capital

 “Initially I thought ‘Ethel’ should be the main character and do the dance at the end, and I always had this image from this French film called My American Uncle. Where it’s like a little girl standing up at a table. I originally had that image in my head for a rap video, but it didn’t really make sense to the song, I wanted this to feel more like surreal so then as I started finding more imagery, it kind of transpired that maybe the maid was the more interesting character.”

Maxim Kelly

The band’s new album Gigi’s Recovery, out January 20th on Human Season Records, was produced by John Congleton.
