Peter Mol returns with the tongue-in-cheek ‘Jesus Murphy’
In case you didn’t gather from the title, Canadian-born artist Peter Mol doesn’t take himself too seriously. One half of the successful indie duo Zerbin, Mol has also collaborated with many a great act in his career to date (a CV that can state the likes of Arcade Fire, Father John Misty and Quincey Jones is pretty cushy to say the least!), but now the singer, songwriter, composer and producer is giving himself some well deserved attention.
Gearing up for the release of his debut solo album, ‘Jesus Murphy’ is the perfect introduction for this new phase of Mol’s work. Powered forth with pulsing bass notes and rippling beats, the track is a tongue-in-cheek self-examination of feeling hopelessness in chasing something and getting no results. Overset with a shamelessly indulgent riff, Mol is clearly relishing the opportunity to explore creativity entirely on his own terms.
‘Jesus Murphy’ is available now.
