“Womens Murder Club” are a 5 man strong musical collective hailing from Dublin City. They formed while still boys attending St. Marys college Rathmines and have been honing their skills ever since. Their goal is not fame nor money, they have no interest in superficial things like top ten hits or traditional thinking.
They simply wish to develop a sound that is their own. A sound that is contemporary yet classical.A sound that can accurately articulate yet transcend the gamut of emotions and experience that five twenty year olds share in this world.” After having read this it’s impossible you are not hungry for more. I had a little chat with Cian Tisdall, guitar.
KALTBLUT: I love your band’s name. Where does it come from?
Cian: It’s the name of some television show we’ve never seen. I used to write a blog and needed a name, I saw Womens Murder Club written on the tv guide I really liked the way it sounded. It looked and felt right, eventually I lost interest in the blog and we adopted it as our own moniker.
KALTBLUT: How and why did you decide the world needed you out there?
Cian: Need is a very strong word. I can’t speak for everyone in the group but we’ve always played in bands, in Dublin I find it really frustrating watching mediocre bands do so well. Alot of the times I’m watching other bands play and I’m thinking that we can do better and create something more interesting. So I think thats why we exist to do better.
KALTBLUT: You are not interested in top ten and other superficial things. What do you want to achieve through your music?
Cian: I just want to write and record music that’d I’d listen to and that hopefully other people will deem worthwhile. I’d like to tour the world and play to more and more people. To create music for a living would be a very sweet existence.
KALTBLUT: How was it recording your first stuff? What are you working on now?
Cian: It was like giving birth. The initial part of the process writing and playing out the track as a band is exhilarating. But when it comes to laying it down in the studio I find that very uncomfortable and tedious there’s never any natural light in studios and spending a whole day in the dark makes me feel really low. We we’re also plagued with production problems after all our parts were recorded meaning the ep has only been released now almost two years after it was recorded. A long pregnancy but once you get the results and hear the tracks you just feel urged to do it all over again. We’re working on a second more organic sounding record. Something with more extremes, less programming. I’m really like the idea of developing a new sound for each release so nothing gets stale.
