The Irish post-punkers returned this summer season with ‘Solely Good Issues‘ and adopted it up with September’s ‘A Thousand Lives’. Now, ‘Ethel’ hears the group at their most momentous, replete with a surrealist Maxim Kelly-directed video.
Director Kelly mentioned of the video: “Initially I believed ‘Ethel’ must be the principle character and do the dance on the finish, and I at all times had this picture from this French movie known as My American Uncle. The place it’s like a bit lady standing up at a desk.
“I initially had that picture in my head for a rap video, however it didn’t actually make sense to the tune, I wished this to really feel extra like surreal so then as I began discovering extra imagery, it type of transpired that perhaps the maid was the extra attention-grabbing character.”

Reviewing the band’s debut 2019 album ‘After I Have Fears’, NME wrote: “The Homicide Capital arrive as the most recent in a brand new, hungry line of Irish rock bands giving the nation – and its capital of Dublin specifically – a brand new popularity as a hotbed of vicious guitar music. The band’s debut single ‘Feeling Fades’, launched initially of the yr, noticed them peddle an analogous type of brazen post-punk as their fast-rising contemporaries Fontaines DC.
“On debut album ‘After I Have Fears’, although, it’s confirmed to be only one piece of the band’s jigsaw, becoming in to a report that’s wealthy, emotional and big in scope.”
