Good Morning announce partnership with Bedroom Suck Records. Their EPs Glory and Shawcross to be reissued on vinyl on 7 July. They share the new video for “To Be Won” via For The Rabbits, who wrote: “To Be Won is a thing of low-key beauty. There’s a touch of Sparklehorse or Elvis Depressedly to the lo-fi minimalism, as the guitar is initially accompanied by nothing more than the distant hiss of tape rolling by. The vocal emerges, melancholy and fuzzy, and there’s a remarkable confidence to the way it regularly departs again throughout, allowing the focus to fall on the instrumentation. The outro is particularly gorgeous as warm piano chords tumble out, amongst meandering, thin and twiddly guitar noodling.”

The band will be heading out to Europe on tour in September, with UK dates in Manchester, London and Brighton – with more shows to be announced.

Good Morning are a two-piece recording project made up of Stefan Blair (Gemini) and Liam Parsons (Aries) from Melbourne, Australia. The two met in high school and have been writing songs ever since. In 2013, they went halvesies in a Foxtex 4 track tape machine. Good Morning is the result of that investment.

They have released two mildly received EPs, Shawcross and Glory, and some similarly received singles. In a live-setting they are joined by James Macleod (Libra) and John Considine (Sagittarius). Together they have performed in the United States at CMJ Music Marathon and most of Australia. Career highlights include being unfavourably compared to Mac DeMarco a lot, that time Urban Outfitters asked to play their music in stores and when Tyler, the Creator tweeted the cover of Shawcross.

This July, Melbourne-based independent label Bedroom Suck Records will re-issue these two beautifully produced and incredibly catchy records on one 12 inch vinyl package, available from July 7, 2017. The package comes with a digital download of all 13 tracks, as well as 6 digital-only singles including “Step Aside”, “On The Street” and “A Vessel”.

The slow tempo and gentle instrumentals are simply mesmerizing.” –The Fader

Evoking both the hazy, slacker tones of Captured Tracks superstar Mac DeMarco with the bittersweet bossa nova act Little Joy … layering sliding guitar ditties and mellifluous harmonies over fuzzy guitar strumming.” –SPIN

On their newest single, things have been stripped down, releasing a solemnity that’s both soothing and intriguing. I love the feeling of a good home recording, there’s something comforting in that…and while this may be a studio track, it has the personal feel of that bedroom soliloquy.” – Austin Town Hall
