Sharing members across King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Crepes, ORB and Beans, ‘Uncle Murl’ as they’ve been affectionately dubbed, set themselves apart for their signature blend of old-world rhythm, blues and psychedelia, bolstered by the unmistakable vocals and harmonica breakdowns of Kenny-Smith.
Forged in their homelands of Victoria’s Surf Coast near Geelong in 2011, across the course of two EPs, five albums, and a dynamic presence on the live circuit, The Murlocs have established themselves as a much-loved staple of the Australian psych and garage scene. They have shared stages in support of The Pixies, Mac DeMarco, Ty Segall, Stephen Malkmus and Gary Clarke Jr., and have made appearances at festivals such as Gizzfest, Splendour In The Grass, Austin Psych Fest, Meredith Music Festival and Boogie.
