Love Fame Tragedy - I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It EP
Published: 2:09 pm, September 27, 2019Words: Josh Williams.

Love Fame Tragedy is the brainchild of that there ‘Murph’ from The Wombats and his debut solo EP ‘I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It’ sees him spreading his wings from the day job and into previously uncharted territory for the Murph machine. Single ‘My Cheating Heart’ is a haze built around a distorted guitar riff, whilst ‘Pills’ sees Murph delve into a more tender territory.

‘Backflip’ is the highlight of the four-track EP, with its refrain of “we’re a poorly timed backflip” wriggling around the ear. Overall, it’s an intriguing first taste of Murph’s delicious solo work (even with the multitude of collaborations involved in the EP) and we certainly hope there’s more to come.
