Good Morning - Shawcross EP
We are going to burden your 'bands to watch' list with another promising group from Melbourne. Good Morning are Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons. Reportedly they met in high school and have been writing together since 2013. A more recent two-week span of inspiration resulted in the seven-track Shawcross EP, which was released by Solitaire Recordings last November 14. The tunes are unabashedly breezy and sunny, bouncing along to the duo's guitars and a bit of synth from their mate Hamish Mitchell. It seems to me that these tracks are about melody, tone and vibe. There are no hard edges or abrasive surfaces, and you'll be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable soundtrack for relaxation. In fact, if you don't have such time scheduled, this music may prompt you to relax just so you have an excuse to listen to the album.
