Major Murphy released the first single from their forthcoming sophomore album, the title-track Access. Access is a fuzzy guitar-driven anthem that you’ll put on repeat. Chunky palm-muted guitars open the powerful yet dreamy shoegaze song, doubled and panned partially left and right.
Jacob Bullard‘s vocals are mixed with a slap delay and blended with a gentle reverb, giving it a timeless feel; harmonies play off the melodies of the guitars. “Something in the way and I know that I’m part of it, like every single day there’s a world that’s left uncovered.”
Additional guitar layers build the energy, with a distant synth, and drums placed in a large room behind these layers. Major Murphy recorded Access at Russian Recording, an excellent studio in Bloomington, Indiana.
“What else can I say that’s not already part of it?Major Murphy – Access (BandCamp)
With everything in place it will surely be uncovered
Even in my own mind I’m going back in time
And I’m hoping the pieces align”
