Selfish Murphy: a dynamic performance filled with classics, easy listening and great songs
The band Selfish Murphy was founded in 2011 in Transilvania (Romania). The formation chose a style of music that was till then unknown in Romania. So they have become the first Romanian band that has chosen the so called Celtic/Irish punk rock. In 2016 the band home country is moved to Hungary.
The method of songwriting always puts in aspect to transmit the unique feeling of Celtic and Irish lifestyle, the main purpose is to transmit the atmosphere of an Irish pub. The majority of the songs are cheerful and easy to digest. In the tracklist we can find traditional Irish songs which are widely popular all around the world (such as: Drunken Sailor, All For Me Grog, Leaving Of Liverpool, Wild Rover) these are played in Celtic/Irish Punk version, of course there are covers that keep the trend of today’s songs (such as: Avicii – wake Me Up /Hey Brother, U2 – With Or Without You) converted in Irish Folk style.
These songs are supplemented with the bands own songs. Which results in a dynamic performance filled with classics, easy listening and one big pub party.
Selfish Murphy plays on Sunday at the Hill Stage.
