The new haunting single for Nick Cave vocalist Martha Skye Murphy
‘Martha Skye Murphy’s songs are haunting, lean and spacious,’ says Nick Cave of former backing vocalist Martha Skye Murphy.
‘Black Eye’ is Martha Skye Murphy’s second release on the label, following her debut EP ‘HEROIDES’. It’s a heart-wrenching piano composition supplemented by Martha’s spectral voice. ‘Black Eye’ is an intense and emotional number, as arresting as it is beautiful.
Recorded at the 4AD studios with Fabian Prynn (Ex:Re), this track presents an unprecedented intimacy and sensitivity within Murphy’s work. ‘Black Eye’ will be released on May 10th accompanied by remixes of the track by Cajm and 4K and music video by artist Clara Boulard and Kit Whalley-Payne. The artwork for this single was provided by Ceidra Moon Murphy and designed by Chris Bigg (V23).
This follows Murphy’s show alongside Glows at the Royal Academy of Arts, and comes before a place on the prestigious bill for Bird On The Wire’s 10th Birthday celebrations on Saturday April 13th at Studio 9294
