The Murder Capital have released their Live From BBC Maida Vale EP, which includes a cover of FKA Twigs' striking ballad "Cellophane".

The three-track EP includes live versions of their When I Have Fears tracks "Green & Blue" and "Don't Cling To Life".

As well as performing two of their own tracks, The Murder Capital also decided to cover FKA Twigs' "Cellophane", an unusual choice that is pulled off surprisingly well.

The band says of their new EP, "When Annie [Mac] asked us to do a live session at Maida Vale, covering FKA Twigs was an easy decision. "Cellophane" especially encapsulates such a poignant landmark of heartbreak, and its innately exposed nature further allowed us to really connect with it."

They add, "The process itself was exciting for us, as we came to reshape its original mould, and impart our own sound and emotion onto the sentiment of inadequacy that she embodies so selflessly on the track. A truly unique artist who we appreciate greatly."

The Murder Capital's Live From BBC Maida Vale EP is out now.
