The Morning Of
Indi/ Alt/ Pop
Tragic Hero Records
The Morning OF, previously known as ‘Don’t Pass Go’
was formed in Newborough, NY.
The band has a dynamic sound coming into the modern music scene
by incorporating a constant collaboration of two lead vocals,
female vocalist Jessica Leplon and male vocalist Justin Wiley.
The music in The Morning Of’s sound pulls in a few different
directions, but almost each song I found an un tampered raw quality
which has almost disappeared.
The band has reached 1,000,000 plays on PureVolume.com and
2,000,000 on Myspace.com.
Their first national full length title ‘The World as We Know It”
was released on January 29th, 2008 and debuted on the Billboard Heatseeker’s chart at # 18.
Putting aside the vocalist Jessica and Justin, on Bass is Abir Hossain,
guitar/piano is Chris Petrosino, and Rob Mccurdy on guitar.
I listened to ‘ The World As We Know It’ it seems to have a fun, even quarky quality.
In my opinion these are radio worthy.
#1. ‘Reverie’ ” Just get me out of this city tonight/” an anthem that
I know many of us find ourselves screaming inside.
#2. ‘The sound of something secure’ This song sparks alternative rock.
#3. ‘Shrine’ and adorable feel good song.
#4. ‘The world as we know it’ Is unique in the way they combine a
hope filled pop tune with the actual words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. during is ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, closing out this cleverly arranged, inspiring yet interesting song.
“The black and white man, Jews, Gentiles, Protestants, Catholics
will be able to join hands.
Free At Last!
Free At Last!
Thank God almighty we are free at last!
