PETER MOL EMERGES FROM EDMONTON WITH "JESUS MURPHY"

August 5, 2019

 

Canadian pride Peter Mol is the hallmark of a versatile musician, establishing himself through an illustrious career doing session work for big name acts such as Arcade Fire, The Roots, Bruno Mars and Father John Misty. After many years performing and producing behind other big name musicians, Peter Mol is finally taking a front seat with his upcoming solo debut.

 

"Jesus Murphy" is a sweet little taste test of what is to come off of Peter Mol's upcoming solo debut. The songs blending lush tropical sounds accompanied with lyrics reflecting existential anguish is to say the least, challenging. On one hand, "Jesus Murphy" appears to be a relaxing song to ease into a beach chair while sipping on a mojito, but with deeper listening Mol's voice exudes heartbreak and defeat. With dancy, tropical love instrumentation, and Mol's catchy refrain of "Someday we're all just gonna die." the listener may be left unsure how to feel. Mol's doomy lyrics contrasted with the shiny sounds evokes the image of people dancing and relaxing on an island paradise as the apocalypse is about to occur, without a care in their minds.
