Love Fame Tragedy unveil new video for Brand New Brain

Matthew “Murph” Murphy has given fans two more treats from his solo project Love Fame Tragedy. Debut EP I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It, out September 27th via Good Soldier Songs / AWAL Recordings, is now available for pre-order here. On top of that Murph has also unveiled the introspective new video for Brand New Brain, the third track taken from the EP. Directed by Taylor Cunningham, the video follows the morning after a heavy night out, waking up in a car in the middle of nowhere. Despite its regret-fuelled opening, the tone becomes increasingly hopeful, mirroring the song’s refrain of 'I’m trying now'.

'It’s taking it way too far and having to claw your way back into whatever normality there was before… A lot of the songs are trying to make sense of the surrounding world and why I do certain things the way I do them'. - Murph

Named after a seminal Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, Love Fame Tragedy is the debut solo project from Matthew “Murph” Murphy, singer and guitarist for platinum-selling indie-pop heroes The Wombats. I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It sees Murph joined in the studio by Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago, alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton, Soundgarden drummer Matt Chamberlain, model and singer Maddi-Jean Waterhouse and singer-songwriter Lauren Aquilina.
