I think sometimes we miss the beauty that is all around us. Manhattan Murder Mystery lives in that space. They are both strikingly unique and refreshingly authentic. They achieve a rare and unaffected style, creating a moment of stillness and magic with a four-piece acoustic band and a big warehouse.
They do it in such a way as to be, in a sense, every band. They are us.
We love the look of large, empty, industrial spaces, and the risk they took with a single live take. It's a gorgeous video and a beautiful song.
