Melbourne four-piece murmurmur recently unveiled their sophomore EP, Moving Objects. To celebrate the release, the band have curated an exclusive playlist for MILKY, full of songs that inspired them during the creation of their new EP.
murmurmur will also be hitting the road in support of the release, kicking off with a set at Loch Heart Music Festival in Princeton on January 15. The sun of shows will continue on to Melbourne and Sydney, before wrapping up in Wollongong on March 13. Tickets to the Melbourne performance are on sale now!
RUSH - SPIRIT OF RADIO
As a band, we’re big fans of Rush. The arpeggiated guitar melody had a big part in influencing the chorus arpeggio in Marianne.
WAND - FLOATING HEAD
For Alive, getting the right vibe between the drums and bass was very important. We used this song as a point of reference.
MGMT - SIBERIAN BREAKS
The end of this song influenced the end of Moving Objects in a big way.
JUDAS PRIEST- PAINKILLER
The double bass drum in the verses prompted us to try double bass drum in the pre choruses of Marianne.
THE BLACK ANGELS - YELLOW ELEVATOR #2
Another track that we used for a vibe reference for the more uptempo tracks. Really like the rawness of the drums.
SUPERET - LOVING THE ANIMAL
Love the drum sound in this one. Huge crunchy drums that we referenced for the Night Owl drum sound.
THEE OH SEES - FACE STABBER
The guitars in this song are so loud and upfront in the mix. We referenced this for the Alive chorus guitars.
POND - GIANT TORTOISE
Have always loved the vibe of this. We tried to harness a bit of it overall.
THE BEATLES - STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER
Big influence on Slanted Building. The use of mellotron and the general vibe.
We played around with kraut rock beats for ages. Night Owl and Alive both came from jams over kraut rock beats that never change and stay consistent regardless of the time signature.
Moving Objects is out now!
