The General formed in 2012, a handpicked line-up of the most talented and fearlessly creative musicians Sky Murphy encountered during a decade on the road. They combine rock and lo-fi based rhythms and riffs that call to mind the likes of Beck and The Stooges with inspired chord sequences, three-part harmonies and a raw analogue sound that reveal a fondness for the Beatles and The Band. The General add their own considerable flair to this mix to create a truly original yet accessible sound, over which Murphy passes comment on a variety of modern themes with his astute, unpretentious and humorous lyrical style. Live, the band are notable for their dedication to feel, exceptional improvisational talents and driving energy.
