Local band Emily Davis and the Murder Police released their newest album “Same old World” on Friday, October 5.
The band held a release party to celebrate at Love Buzz, a local bar.
With influences such as Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Alan Parsons, the bands folk rock, alternative act type of sound is a fresh new addition to El Paso’s usual artist.
"Same old World" was
relased on Oct. 5.
Their lyrics allow listeners to open up their mind to new ideas while still talking about things we can all relate on.
“Our main themes tend to be about questioning yourself and the world around you. I’ve branded much of it under the term ‘nihilistic optimism,’” Singer/Songwriter Emily Davis said.
Wanting to reach broader audiences, the band targets college students in order to help students get through the pressure of school.
“I think people in college need music more than almost anyone else,” Davis said. “College is some of the most stressful years we experience. I know that personally, music helped me through much of that stress.”
The band hopes the audience experiences new feelings through their lyrics.“I want them to be able to relate to what I’m saying, and the emotions evoked by the music we make together. I want our sound to be translatable and I want it to resonate,” Davis said.
The brand hopes to see upcoming growth in the future and hopes their album gets more traction.
Emily Davis and the Murder police have had three albums out so far that are serving as a sort of mile marker in a symbiotic evolution of identity and sound.
“We certainly hope plenty of people here at home give our new album a listen. We’re lucky to have support all over though, and I’m hoping that it broadens in the near future,” Davis said.
Their album will be available for download at their bandcamp page, emilydavis.bandcamp.com,
