Formed in the mountains and trails of rural Connecticut, Murmur is a new dark-alternative-folk project from the creative minds of hardcore veterans Peter Morcey (100 Demons, Forced Reality) and Ryan Patrick White (Call It Arson, Jagged Visions). Pioneers in the underground CT hardcore scene, the duo has united for a complete departure from their roots with a dark, moody musical journey built on acoustic guitars with gorgeous harmonies, orchestral strings and subtle instrumentation.
Today, Murmur has released their first new song, “Funeral of the Hunt,” from their forthcoming, debut album, The Boundless Black, that’s due out in a few months. Further details of the release forthcoming. Stream the song now at http://smarturl.it/funeral-of-the-hunt.
“Though clocking in as the shortest song on The Boundless Black, “Funeral for the Hunt” encapsulates everything Murmur. Dark lyrical content with light at the end, melancholy string arrangements and timeless harmonies with a classical influence. It was one of the first songs we had written together and one that is up there as a favorite. “
The Boundless Black is a slow burning and haunting journey through love, loss and ancient folklore…all the while the light of beauty and grace shining through. A lush tour through the cold, dark winter of life, while staying devoid of fear and riding tandem with faith and hope. The album is a stark masterpiece of mood and chilling melodies, reminiscent of acts like Tom Waits, Mark Lanegan and Death In June.
