About Our Music
The band SELFISH MURPHY was founded in 2011 in Transilvania (Romania). The formation chose a style of music that was till then unknown in Romania, they have been the first band in Romania that has chosen the so called Celtic/Irish punk rock. In 2016 the band home country is moved to Hungary. The method of songwriting always puts in aspect to transmit the unique feeling of Celtic and Irish lifestyle, the main purpose is to transmit the atmosphere of an Irish pub. The majority of the songs are cheerful and easy to digest. In the track list we can find traditional Irish songs which are widely popular all around the world (such as: Drunken Sailor, All For Me Grog, Leaving Of Liverpool) these are played in Celtic/Irish Punk version, of course there are covers that keep the trend of todays songs (such as: Avicii – wake Me Up /Hey Brother, U2 – With Or Without You) converted in Irish Folk style. These songs are supplemented with the bands own songs, these pieces are mainly focusing on simplicity and dynamism (Drinking Song, Drunken Bastards, Bad Girl). To sum up the conclusion, the band can be traced by: Cheerful songs + Beer + Party = Selfish Murphy.
