It seems that recently as new post-punk outfits have been popping up we end up comparing each one to it's contemporaries. Fontaines DC was given the same treatment upon their debut, but I think it's worth elaborating on where The Murder Capital's debut When I Have Fears differs tremendously from these acts and shifts their sound in different directions from these contemporaries.

The comparison between IDLES and The Murder Capital is obvious, but that doesn't stop "When I Have Fears" from being incredible. The writing is outstanding, the production is great, the atmosphere of both the energetic and slow tracks are engaging and it's just very enticing post-punk. Now that I think about it, the last couple of years were surprisingly good to the genre.

Cathartic, ferocious, impressive , energetic. Such qualities exists within the packed 10 track debut of the mysterious Irish post punk act The Murder Capital which spins a familiar sonic territory as their contemporaries IDLES or Fontaines D.C. Just take their opening track, For Everything, which has an eerie, ominous vibe that introduces the record with a bang and it sticks. Undoubtedly one of the better post punk records you'll ever hear this year.
