John Murry – I Refuse To Believe (You Could Love Me)
I Refuse To Believe (You Could Love Me) is a gritty and dark single about the alienation that one feels due to their baggage, that leads to insecurities about the love one is shown. It often feels like your mind subconsciously sabotages your blossoming interpersonal relationships because deep down, you believe you don’t deserve affection and you shouldn’t have to burden someone. The compromise we must partake in is to disappear from their lives, like a particular English aristocrat and an Australian politician. Embodying this emotional vulnerability is the sincere Irish singer-songwriter John Murry, who is known for his unorthodox hazy and baritone folk style. It’s rawness is indisputable, as Murry digs into his own dark life experiences of which there are plenty. Featuring dark and moody guitar riffs and kinetic percussion alongside Murry’s gravel vocals, I Refuse To Believe is both heartfelt and cathartic (and a little funny) for a melancholy ode. It’s also the third single to his upcoming album, The Stars are God’s Bullet Holes, so stay tuned for that!
