Video: Charles Murdoch feat. Oscar Key Sung – Privacy
Mercurial Brisbane producer Charles Murdoch has today released the final instalment in a powerful trilogy of short films from German creative collective, Jünglinge, each soundtracked by new material from his forthcoming debut LP; “Straws”, “Frogs”, and finally “Privacy”, featuring Oscar Key Sung.
Shot in Germany and tackling themes of suppressed sexuality and contradictory identities, the accompanying film follows Pete, a skinhead whose daily life is decisively affected by his membership of an aggressive, right-winged group and his urge to play out suppressed desires of love. The final part in the trilogy is arguably the most poignant, offering the viewer an emotional insight into the life of the protagonist. The beautiful, textured soundscapes from Charles’ arrangements perfectly compliments the film, pushing the intricate narrative of self-denial to a whole new level.
On completing the trilogy, Faraz and Paulina, the two twenty-year olds behind Jünglinge, have said “Putting together the last piece of a story that has accompanied us for over a year now was tough – you have to be careful when arranging the very last images to leave your viewers with“, and on the collaboration with Charles’ label “It’s cool to have found collaborators at Future Classic that see the potential in creating cinematic experiences that tackle social issues“.

Charles only recently announced the release of his eagerly-awaited debut LP “Point”, due for release 11th December on Future Classic. With featured vocals from Ta-ku, Oscar Key Sung, Wafia, Hak, KUČKA and Chloe Kaul, “Point” is an album of treasures; a beautifully diverse masterpiece from start to finish.
