Father Murphy are a band from Italy that plays an occult form of psychedelic pop rock and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Pain Is On Our Side Now" which was released by Aagoo.
Heavy and distorted drones and harsh noises start off the ep along with some industrial sounds and after awhile the music gets more avant garde and experimental along with some psychedelic sounds being utilized from the keyboards and percussion's are added into certain sections of the recording and the bring a very militant feeling to the record.
The music starts getting more diverse on the other tracks with some spoken word parts being added in along with some distorted guitars and melodic singing as well as some movie samples and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also have a bonus ep that contains the edited versions of the track and they also have a more dark and evil sound than the original versions as well as adding in elements of neo classical and chamber music.
Father Murphy have a very original and ritualistic sound with their music taking an occult form of psychedelic music and adding in some pop elements along with a good amount of drones and harsh noises to create their own sound, the production has a very dark and raw sound and the song themes cover Occultism and the Catholic sense of guilt.
In my opinion Father Murphy are a very great sounding occult psychedelic pop band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bones All Gone" and "Despite All The Grief". 8/5 out of 10.
