Immersive, textural and laden with esoteric melodies and hooks, Melbourne’s murmurmur inject a moment of beauty into the cold indifference of a rapidly changing world with new single “Everything’s Still Changing”

Produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones), “Everything’s Still Changing” had its first spin on triple j’s Home and Hosed last night and sees the band continue to develop the idiosyncratic psych/prog-pop sound that they captured on their ambitious 2018 debut “Cable Car”.  Written by lead singer and guitarist William Fletcher in early 2019, the song draws on his struggle to pay time and attention to the aspects of life that don’t fall within the confines of his crammed suburban bedroom where he fastidiously produces new music. As Fletcher puts it; “when I write I become totally absorbed in what I’m doing – it’s the only way I know how to work. The downside is that I tend to pay less attention to other aspects of my life like friendships, going outside and hummus. This song an expression of recognising that about myself. ” 

To celebrate the release of their new single, murmurmur will be performing headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney, to be announced soon. Adding to their growing list of recent festival appearances including Beyond the Valley, By the Meadow and King Street Crawl, murmurmur will play Yours and Owls in Wollongong this October.  With heaps of exciting news to come and a growing reputation as one of the most exciting live prospects on the Australian emerging scene, these shows are not be missed!
