The Selfish Murphy band was founded in 2011 in Transylvania (Romania). The formation chose a style of music that was until then unknown in Romania, they have been the first band to play the so called celtic/irish punk rock
. Their songs aim to transmit the unique feeling of Celtic and Irish lifestyle and the atmosphere of an Irish pub.
The majority of the songs are cheerful and easy to digest. In the tracklist we can find traditional Irish songs, which are widely popular all around the world (such as: Drunken Sailor, All For Me Grog, Leaving Of Liverpool, Wild Rover) these are played in Celtic punk style, of course there are covers that keep the trend of today’s songs converted into a Transylvanian Irish folk style. These songs are supplemented with the bands’ own songs, mainly focusing on simplicity and dynamism.
To sum up: the band can be traced by: Cheerful songs + Beer + Party = Selfish Murphy.
