2. Just 19
Lightness, friendship, feeling the urge to change the world. Listening to Beatles songs, getting high on Pink Floyd, drinking the last beer to Radiohead. Indie? Pop? Who cares! Later on: walking through the night, arm in arm, shouting down the streets, singing: "I thought I was someone else, someone good!".
The morning after. Hangover feeling. Coffee and cigarettes. Drifting between the worlds. A soundtrack.
Morning Boy is all of this. A view of life. With Indie-Pop and great imagery. Since having released the EP "For Us, The Drifters. For Them, The Bench." (2008) and getting signed by Waggle-Daggle Records, the world of Morning Boy has turned upside down. The quartet’s first single "I Sold My Heart Today" (2009) was a powerful and intense song driven by romantic incitement.
Made for reminiscing or starting a revolution.
The new album "We Won't Crush" is Morning Boy's first LP, full of energy and celebrating pop without falling for kitsch. Driving beats, pushing sounds and melancholic mood form the framework for honest songs, that work on your hi-fi as well as live on stage.
The record was produced by Simon Rauland and Morning Boy at the Fundindelve Recording Arts Studio in Eppstein near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The recordings were mastered by Michael Schwabe (Kilians, Kettcar, Einstu¨rzende Neubauten, Tele) at his Monoposto Studio in Du¨sseldorf.
