Fritz Performs ‘Die Happily’ Live at Enmore
It’s been a rapid evolution for FRITZ (aka Newcastle artist, Matilda Murphy). Since coming to national attention on Biggest Fool in the World, her sound has taken on a dream-pop twist, case in point, Die Happily.
Lyrically, the song channels the blissful of moments from teenage-hood, which is reflected in the hyper-nostalgic layers of shoegaze guitars, air synth pads and Murphy’s intimate delivery.
Travelling light for the session alongside guitarist Lewis Demertzi, the song still packs a weighty sonic and emotional punch.
Die Happily was Mixed and Recorded by Dan Shaw and Radi Safi
The twin guitar assault provided depth and distinction in the mix of Die Happily — Murphy’s fuzzed-out chords paired well with the heavily synthetic bass lines, Demertzi’s lead lines perfectly complimenting Murphy’s vocals, especially in the song’s soaring coda.
Here’s what Murphy had to say about the song:
“It’s about adolescence and spending meaningful moments with friends and the feeling of having good friends and good people around you“.
