The Murlocs Pop Out Colourful ‘Young Blindness’ Video
Prepare to unleash your psychedelic animal! Melbourne’s R&B garage-rockers The Murlocs have just released a music video for their new album-titled single Young Blindness, and despite the name, this groovy number is all Woodstock-style vibrancy!
The music video is as if a row of lava lamps exploded and the individual blobs elongated into blurry life forms to create dream-like animation, while the song itself is a burst of dishevelled whisky-drenched guitar licks and tremolo-style vocals, when put together, sound like The Rolling Stones in the late 60s.
Lyrically, Young Blindness focuses on young paranoia and self-doubt through the eyes of a world-weary soul.
“I kinda grew up fast as a kid, I was always hanging out with older people so I cut my teeth early on,” frontman Ambrose Kenny-Smith said. “Years later I realise how oblivious I was to my surroundings. In the end it all comes back around to the idea of being naïve and learning as you go”.
Since their conception in 2011, the 5-piece have achieved nationwide success with their innovative fusion of 60’s rock, wailing blues melodies and sloppy R&B grooves.
The colourful quintet are currently gearing up to promote their freshly released sophomore album ‘Young Blindness’ with a nationwide tour. The journey will also include an appearance at Brisbane’s Blurst of Times Festival.
