Murmansk takes it's first steps after Sonic Youth, Queens of the Stone Age and Placebo on their first album which was released 2008. There is raw sounds and a lot of effects on the album. Playing and singing work just perfectly together.
The singer Lauras voice is almost pure perfection. Her voice has different levels and can be both beautiful and raw. My band was once supporting them on gig and I was stunned at the soundcheck how emotional her voice was.
The album kind of starts from the second song (Vague Language). Nothing But The Moon grows beautifully. The album is full of surprises.
