The Morning Light – The Sounds Of Love EP
Release Date: June 9th, 2007
Record Label: Unsigned
Every year there's always the one release that comes out of nowhere and "wows" me. This year, that title belongs to The Morning Light's The Sounds Of Love. You may notice above this paragraph the word "unsigned" next to label. How that's possible? I have no idea. But if this band continues to make the music they are now, it won't stay that way for much longer.
The Sounds Of Love will catch your ears from beginning to end, starting with the wonderful acoustic opener “The Love.” This song is just merely an introduction for what's to come in the next five songs, and what's to come will surely have you impressed.
“You're Not Mine” is the song following and could be considered to have the most "rock" feel out of all the songs on the EP. Even though the lyrics may be something you would find featured in an away message of someone who's just been rejected by a girl they like ("You're not mine and I know it/But that night I couldn't hold it in/Because I feel just right when you're standing next to me"), it doesn't make me like it any less, because everything else up to the superb vocals make up for it.
Now for my favorite track, and what I can see being the fan favorite, as well as even the song playing on MTV is “Books And Letters.” Arguably the catchiest song on the release, which is something you'll find out come the second line of the first verse, this track has the ability to put you in a great mood regardless of how crappy your mood could have been before and it's safe to say it'll see the top the of the charts of my most played songs on my last.fm in no time.
Overall, this is a great debut from a band that's oozing with potential from every hole of their bodies, and may very well be a release that joins You, Me, And Everyone We Know's Party For The Grown And Sexy in terms of being played daily for a long time. Don't miss out on one of the most refreshing pop rock EPs released this year.
These guys are some of the most talented, hardest working, and sweetest guys in the scene right now. Some of my friends and I made the almost 4 hour trek to Pittsburgh for the release show and it was absolutely worth it.
i heard from a friend that Matt Squire is doing their full length, with our without a label
Wouldn't surprise me one bit, these guys are so insanely talented. I am sure if Squire thinks highly of them he would do it in a second. He has worked with All Time Low, Cute, and others they have toured with.
