In this age of highly packaged artists The Morning Birds are a breath of fresh air, playing and recording their material with fantastic originality and dynamic range. Taking us back to a time when music wasn't over-produced and streamlined, but real, raw, and rocking
The Morning Birds cinematic tones make you feel as if you're floating on a cumulous cloud at daybreak being transported to another time and place like a willing Dorothy and Toto. Their music is a captivating and potent mix of the eclectic, the poetic, and the spiritual, capturing your attention on both an intrinsic and intellectual level without compromising their innate accessibility.
While forming an uncanny mixture of sounds, the band’s music is both familiar and mysterious, groovy yet mellow, profound but fun. Their powerful bass lines, lush harmonies and soulful strings are complimented by break beats, trumpets, and cascading keys while Jennifer Thorington and Samuel Markus’ stunning vocals weave around complex, yet comforting, sublime pop
That being said, the most apropos thing about the band is their message. Like their name suggests, they have come to wake us up. Not with a ten gun salute, but with the melodic, uninhibited sound reminiscent of beautiful birds heralding in the breaking of the dawn, calling you gently from your sleep into the light of a new day.
