Americana Highways brings you this song premiere of the Murphs’ “Casino,” from their self-titled debut album due out on December 17. The Murphs was recorded at The Vault Recording Lounge (Marietta, GA) and produced by Kevin Sellors, Cody Marlowe, Austin Coleman, Rob D’Angelo, and Katie Coleman. It was mastered by John Baldwin, with album art by Wren Design. “Casino” is Cody Marlowe (Lead Vocals, Drums, Keys), Austin Coleman (Bass, Vocals, Piano, Guitar), Rob D’Angelo (Electric Guitar), and Katie Coleman (vocals and keys).
Beginning with a bustling cacophony, the Murphs wind out into a slow tempo rumination. Try the Murphs’ new album when you need to let yourself relax and get lost in some needed release.
“Casino” is about being so deep into something, whether it be a vice or otherwise, that you begin to lose perspective. The protagonist of the song is trying to escape but finds himself constantly walking the line, as it is more difficult to leave than he initially believes. Using a casino as a metaphor seemed very fitting, as Casino’s notoriously use various tactics to keep their customers. — The Murphs
