Straight On Till Morning – Happy You’re Gone – Release date 24th March
Straight On Till Morning are an eclectic Alt-Rock four piece from London who fuse musical styles to create powerful songs laced with unforgettable hooks. David Blomiley’s distinct falsetto vocals (rooted in childhood Operatic training) sit seamlessly over fantastic fuzzy guitar riffs, funky bass lines (Sam Weston), dreamy lead guitar, funky drums (Olly Brown) and keys lines (Toryn Westcott).
Straight On Till Morning is a Peter Pan reference, giving the directions to the magical world of Neverland. Blomiley says “It’s about refusing to grow up and the total escapism of playing music”.
Happy You’re Gone is a dual layered song with a hidden meaning. Blomiley says “on the surface the song quite deliberately comes across as a break up song. In one respect the deeper meaning of the song is about the breakdown of a relationship but it is the relationship with depression and sadness and how it consumes and overtakes your life. The countless efforts in hiding how you feel from those people around you and eventually refusing to feel that way any longer. You can end up in a place where you feel lost and directionless in life.”
The band cite their influences as Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, Carter Beauford, Muse, Kings of Leon, Rolling Stones and Incubus to name a few.
