The Murder Capital – Oporto Leeds – Friday 11th November 2022 January 9, 2023

As a part of their almost secret acoustic tour, one of Ireland’s finest bands, the Murder Capital, stopped off at Oporto Leeds for a very intimate stripped-back show. It was just three-quarters of the mighty quintet on stage, James, Cathal, and Damian. It was a fabulous, albeit very short set, in a gig pulled together by Leeds Student Radio and Oporto. While this was only a seven-song set it was free, but more importantly, it enabled the lads to give us a preview of a few songs (five in fact) from their upcoming new album ‘Gigi’s Recovery’ (due out on 20th January). Recent singles “A Thousand Lives” and “Only Good Things” were gorgeous and I loved the haunting, “The Stars Will Leave Their Stage”, but the highlight for me was another song from the new album, “Ethel” that was monumentally sublime. I think it is clear that the Murder Capital has progressed, particularly lyrically, and that the new album will be a big step from their previous release and I think ‘Gigi’s Recovery’ will show the world that this band are not afraid of change and will be a force in music for a very long while!
