Love Fame Tragedy
12th September 2019 - 7:00 pm

Matthew “Murph” Murphy – guitarist and lead singer of indie pop trio The Wombats – has announced his debut solo project Love Fame Tragedy. The project’s first EP, I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It, recorded between London and LA and featuring a raft of musical collaborators, is out in September via Good Soldier Songs / AWAL Recordings. Debut single ‘My Cheating Heart’ debuted on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” and is available to stream now on all DSPs. Listen HERE and watch the video featuring model and singer Maddi Jean Waterhouse (who also lends vocals to the track) HERE.

Undeniably infectious and built around a distorted guitar riff, ‘My Cheating Heart’ delves into the temptations of hedonistic excess. Producer Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) adds a warped, synthetic edge to Murph’s irrepressible songwriting talent, creating an arena-ready head-nodder that sets the tone for his forthcoming debut solo EP.

Named after a seminal Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, Love Fame Tragedy sees Murph joined by a variety of friends and collaborators for I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It, including Pixies’ Joey Santiago, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J, model and singer Maddi Jean Waterhouse, and former Soundgarden and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain.
