- Breaking Away Murdocco 3:43
Murdocco is set to release her new single titled ‘Breaking Away’. Consider this track a sign that Murdocco is at a crossroad in her musical journey. Starting off with a simple guitar and a feeling of dread and longing. I found it brilliant at how this song actually starts. Almost as if it doesn’t want to. Like it does not want to convey what it is about to say. The music emotionally follows the message. I found that totally amazing. It’s against the norm.
Murdocco has always been one of those artists to buck traditions in music and take the song into her own special flow. ‘Breaking Away’ is the new best example of this. You feel it. Exactly what the song is about. This is what songwriting is about.

Her songs have been played on many radio stations across the UK and internationally.
‘Breaking Away’ is her sixth release.
The track describes a state of daze, confusion and resignation, hints at the end of a relationship with no chance of being able to talk things through to mend it, there is resignation and a desire to move on.
It speaks of an effort to feel stronger, breaking away from control and moving on. Another intimate track with a sentimental voice, arpeggios that build up tension, distortion on electric guitars, strings with elements of trap and electronic beats.
