Today, Good Morning - the Melbourne-based recording project of Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons - present two new singles, “Boy, I’m Just A Loser For Your Love” and “Take It Easy For Me, Stranger” which you can stream/ download HERE.
“Boy, I’m Just A Loser For Your Love” is a song of laid-back pessimism. Parsons’ vocals drawl over drifting guitar and gentle percussion as he sings about a faltering relationship. “‘Boy, I’m Just A Loser For Your Love’ is meant to be two things - a queer country song, and a synth country song”, says Parsons. “It’s definitely queer, and it definitely has a synth or two. Whether or not you could call it country is another thing, but hey, we tried.”
Throughout “Take It Easy For Me, Stranger,” Blair and Parsons’ voices softly blend together, resulting in a gorgeously hazy track of crooning intimacy. "‘Take it easy…’ was recorded in a shop on High Street in Northcote. Lyrically it’s directed to some crazy entitled person we met at a bar on Lygon St, although I doubt they will ever hear it. It’s a reminder that no one person’s life is anymore important than another’s, and that anger and prejudice don’t serve to benefit anybody."
To celebrate the release of their new music, Good Morning will embark on a an extensive 18 Date Headline Tour of North America, which will mark the first time the band have ever toured the US of A, much to the delight of their legions of fans stateside. Full details and all ticket links for the North America tour can be found here.
Before they depart Australian shores Good Morning are excited to announced that they will play a very special show in their hometown of Melbourne at Howler on Friday 22nd of September. Supports for this show will be announced shortly but in the meantime you can grab your tickets here.
Good Morning are also very excited to welcome Bec Young and Collective Artists to their team, who will now be taking care of all AU/NZ bookings.
