Murder is the project of Jacob Bellens and Anders Mathiasen. They have composed and played together for ten years. Their first album, One Year From Now It’s My Birthday, arrived in March 2005. The latest album, Stockholm Syndrome, released in Denmark in October 2006, has been getting rave reviews and several critics declared it album of the year. The critics also gave Murder two nominations at the annual critic award show in 2007; one for “Best New Band” and one for “Best Vocalist”. Despite their lo-fi sound, Murder received massive airplay at the national radio with the singles When The Bees Are Sleeping and Applejuice. Stuart Staples from Tindersticks is a declared Murder fan, and the band was invited to support Tindersticks on 8 shows in December ‘08. Live the line-up varies from duo to septet. A new Murder album will be recorded early 2009, and is expected to see the light of day in late Summer 2009.
