Major Murphy have shared a new song called ‘In the Meantime’. Written after vocalist/guitarist Jacob Bullard and bassist/vocalist Jacki Warren’s young son suffered from lead poisoning, the track taken from the group’s upcoming sophomore LP, Access. Check it out below.
Waxahatchee‘s Katie Crutchfield said of the band’s new album in a statement: “It’s an album that’s remarkably cohesive – a striking relic in an age where ardent and true ‘album-making’ is a fading art form. In nine songs, it somehow takes a listener backwards & forwards at once, reckoning with intrinsic anxieties while conceptualising a fantastical and vibrant happening, soothing in its familiar, occasionally childlike tone.”
Access marks the follow-up to Major Murphy’s 2018 debut No. 1. It was recorded between late 2018 and early 2020 at Russian Recording in Bloomington, Indiana with Mike Bridavsky and Ben Lumsdaine. Last month, the group released the album’s title track.
