JOHN MURRY Unveils New Single I REFUSE TO BELIEVE (YOU COULD LOVE ME)

“This song is my take on what Ric Ocasek (RIP) from The Cars might write if he had been into those dark "UK Surf" era Pixies mixes and found himself a bit trapped in Kilkenny, Ireland, for some years and - while there - grew a bit more alienated, broke, maligned, and bored by the day, then a week, then a month, then years. Ric would've probably written something much catchier, but y'all catch my drift, yeah?”

Dropping his fourth and latest single from his new album, The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes, Mississippi-born John Murphy has unveiled the powerful I Refuse To Believe (You Could Love Me). Endlessly edgy and darkly emotive, this brand new offering serves as an enticing welcome into the world of Murry at such a pivotal moment in his career. 

Sharing his ideas behind his new release:  “This song is my take on what Ric Ocasek (RIP) from The Cars might write if he had been into those dark “UK Surf” era Pixies mixes and found himself a bit trapped in Kilkenny, Ireland, for some years and – while there – grew a bit more alienated, broke, maligned, and bored by the day, then a week, then a month, then years. Ric would’ve probably written something much catchier, but y’all catch my drift, yeah?”

Boasting a delightfully dynamic soundscape consisting of ominous percussion and darkly alluring guitar riffs, this irresistible and heady concoction from John Murry is just the latest in a long list of thrilling releases. Following up from the success of tracks “Oscar Wilde (Came Here To Make Fun Of You)” and “Ones + Zeros”, Murray commands your attention from the opening notes and holds you in the palm of his hand through till the very end.
