PRAISE FOR GOOD MORNING

“Everything’s looking good for Good Morning”
Billboard

“The music has the easiness you feel looking out at the ocean”
Broadsheet

“More intricate production and a voice from singer Liam Parsons on ‘Keep It’
that sounds distinctly like Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy”

NME

“Chill and organic indie rock, but there are some slight stylistic differences
due to each member taking lead vocals on some Lennon-McCartney shit…”

Stereogum

“Country feels like the culmination of everything that Good Morning
have spent their almost-decade together working towards”

Rolling Stone

“The Australians are coming out in full force”
Paste Magazine

“These are warm, inviting songs made for long drives on sunny afternoons”
Frankie Magazine

“Gloriously catchy dessert rock”
Pilerats

Today, Good Morning will be taking to Youtube to premiere the second video edition of ‘Country’ and take part in a live chat on the site. The premiere will give the band time to connect with fans live ahead of the release of their next album Barnyard on October 22. Watch the premiere / take part in the chat HERE, today at 10AM AEST.

The video is a continuation of the last, a glimpse into the film being filmed from the first video. With joint direction from Dannika Horvat and Aidan McDonald, Liam and Stefan are joined on the Eltham Scout Hall stage by a swag of friends and peers that bring the two-piece into full band mode; with members of local outfits, Cool Sounds and Skydeck, to arts and culture writers Shaad D’Souza and Greer Clemens trading pens for instruments, and more.

‘Country’ evokes a feeling as universal as it is instantly understood, with lines such as “You know that I’m incapable of changing / Some people just get stuck in their ways / Never thought it’d be me like this / I was meant to be brave,” that see Parsons deliver a vocal performance comparable to Brandon Flowers and Dave Le’aupepe, with lyrics just as authentic and meditative. Visually, ‘Country‘ is brought to life against a recurring backdrop of Liam’s childhood, the 1st Eltham Scouts Hall“I was always too embarrassed to admit that I was a scout to my school friends, the same way I was too embarrassed to admit that I got piano lessons. Both of those things are ridiculous. Scouts is cool and so are piano lessons” he shares.

Good Morning are rulebreakers. Not in a sexy, flamboyant way – more in a casual, resigned kind of way. Accidental and incidental rulebreakers. The creation and release of their sixth album, Barnyard, is the result of a process of patient refinement and the breaking of a couple of self-imposed rules. Thoughtful, catchy, idiosyncratic, and nearly twice the average length of their back catalogue, it’s all the things one might love about Good Morning, this time around presented with the fat trimmed and the edges sharpened. Recorded at Wilco’s famed studio The Loft, for the first time in a long time the record was made with the help of an outside engineer and will see an international release on a record label not operated by a friend, but instead, Polyvinyl, joining the likes of AlvvaysJulia JacklinSTRFKRKero Kero Bonito and more. A milestone in the history of the band it’s also their most meditative record, thoughtful and careful in its evocations. Not too little and not too much, it’s just right – just Good Morning.
