Bio

murmurmur (pronounced mer-mer-mer) was born in February 2017 when Will Fletcher stumbled across the idiosyncratic guitar riff that provides the defining moment in “I Can’t Stop Thinking About All The Time I’ve Taken From You”. Fletcher was soon joined by Alex Crosara (guitar), Fintan Bradley (synthesiser), Jack Davies (bass) and Luke Haaja (drums), who helped to bring his prog/psych-pop odysseys to life. Across the four songs that comprise murmurmur’s debut self-titled EP (produced by Oscar Dawson of Holy Holy), Fletcher’s haunting, emotive vocal blends with guitar hooks that sink into the recesses of your mind and stay there. There is an urgency to murmurmur’s soundscapes - they sound like a time and place you’re not aware of but which you’re desperate to find.

I was about to hit stop. Wasn't feeling it. But let it run through a bit more. Around the minute mark, I said 'ok, it's starting to gel now'. At 1'27" I simply went 'wow'. They don't name check Tame Impala anywhere (although Ariel Pink is in the ballpark), but there's a bit of that guitar psych here for sure.

such a realised sound for a debut, it's room filling stuff.
