The Murlocs is a five piece band led by singer and harmonica player Ambrose Kenny-Smith, who also plays with the psychedelic rock band extraordinaire King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard ... and he is not the only member associated with other bands form the Melbourne scene. Their music is focused on the classic garage rock sound with arrangements that are more straightforward and less experimental or psychedelic. The production is not particularly polished, which gives their music a sense of immediacy and earnestness. Kenny-Smith's bluesy harmonica also plays a crucial role in defining the band's sound. There is clearly a soft spot in their collective hearts for old school rock'n roll, though a lot of their songs also have an early '70s high end pop songwriting displayed by artists like Harry Nilsson.
