grand rapids trio major murphy are gearing up to release their debut full-length at the end of next month. the three-piece traffics in a brand of soft rock imbued with the warmth of yesteryear’s am radio compounded by jacob bullard’s harmonic interplay with jackie warren, and all components are on full display throughout their latest single, “one day.”
brassy synth pads envelop bell-like guitar up-strokes and a steady back-beat from the track’s outset, the resulting vessel cooly cruising down a sonic highway before bullard’s lead vocal merges seamlessly into the texture. the end result is a slightly hazy, understated slice of comfort food, a perfect primer for those just discovering the wonder of major murphy.
no. 1 is out march 30th via winspear. listen to “one day” below.
