Melbourne’s The Murlocs will release their brand new studio album, Calm Ya Farm, May 19 on ATO Records. Spiked with their signature breed of sharply crafted garage-punk—and with lead vocalist, guitarist & harmonica triple threat Ambrose Kenny-Smith’s surrealist musings on the ever-turbulent world around him—the new collection ultimately twists country-rock convention into a free-flowing album fully in touch with the frenetic energy of modern life. Recorded in their home studios and mixed by repeat collaborator John Lee, the new collection brings that sun-drenched sound to tracks like previously shared lead track “Initiative” and brand new single “Undone and Unashamed” released today with an accompanying video.
A gloriously hip-shaking number featuring Kenny-Smith’s first-ever saxophone solo, the new song paints a portrait of unapologetic dissolution, gracefully threaded with derelict poetry. Composed by keyboardist Tim Karmouche, Kenny-Smith who helped arrange and write the song’s lyrics says, “Letting loose all the time comes at a cost. When you choose to not hold yourself accountable for your actions by going on countless benders will only make things worse. People don’t always forgive and forget.” The band’s country-fried sense of humor comes to life in the one-of-a-kind new video.
