If you have ever seen The Murder Capital live then what will strike you most about the experience is not the heaviness, the bleakness or the rage you might expect, but witnessing a most extreme vision of tenderness. Reputation of The Murder Capital spectacularly intense gigs has been ahead of them. Dublin’s five-piece released their debut album after long queues dragged in front of venues they played at showcase festivals and elsewhere. “When I Have Fears” was recorded with Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order), embodies this tenderness; it is a purple bruise on the hard knee of the so-called post-punk resurgence: “It is not a labour of love but a struggle through love, loneliness and grief. We’re not marching, but dancing, out into the cold light of day.”
