Murals "Violet City Lantern" Streaming early via Hype Machine
We're psyched to unveil the new Murals record in full. Streaming for the week over at Hype Machine prior to next Friday's release date. Read + Listen below !
"The slow-swirling psychedelia on Violet City Lantern, Murals' debut full length LP, is the work of three childhood friends, jamming in a house (and former daycare) atop a hill in their hometown of Louisville. In it, The Fader hears chamber-pop of the '60s and '70s, uniquely merging with those tonal surroundings: "the Appalachian folk lineage of Kentucky, and the bygone innocence of the kids who once occupied their new home."
Formed nearly 10 years ago while in high school the band now known as Murals have traveled a long road to their debut Full Length LP. After some dips and turns the three core members have landed back in their home town of Louisville, KY. They write record and live in a house on a hill in the not so swank part of town - the type of place that acid trips and all day jam sessions go hand in hand. The results are an ever present body of slow churning psychedelic folk that wouldn't be so surprising in your hippie dad's record collection or buried deep in the crates of your headiest record store.
