about

Tight compositions and innovative soundscapes are populated by sketches of love and loss on Instant Treeline's debut release, Morning Songs. The album is grounded in classic songwriting traditions and it’s intricate, unexpected structures are filled with resonant pop sensibility.

As an album, Morning Songs looks hopefully into universal, ordinary life. The opening track, Summer Rain, is a meditation on baptismal change and the follow up, Winter Storm, is a screaming reflection on movement, progress and adventure. Go and Find the Wine, is a quick track that speaks a message of rebirth that is at once optimistic and slightly pathetic. Magdalene is a prayer for a return to normalcy.

And Linger … well … Linger’s got a lot of fans.

Track Name: Summer Rain
Jane,
I've been running out of reasons to blame myself

Wait,
I've been waiting on a reason to change
But I won't

Pray,
That with the morning sun will come
The Summer Rain
Track Name: Winter Storm
Drifting down the Mass Pike
Running from a late winter storm

Going to New Haven
Trying to catch the next train north

Got a wedding down in Newport
And they say there will be gin

Know the bride can't stand me
But tomorrow we'll be kin

Showed up stone cold sober
I felt out of place

Lost my car keys at the party
And I had to get away

That's okay I don't mind
We're just trying to have a little fun

Grab her hand give her a spin
And tell her she's the only one

Buy her a drink she looks good in pink
Yeah we're all, trying to have a little fun

Strolling through the Village
And the hour's getting late

So I called her a cabby
When I said she couldn't stay

She just told me that she loved me
But she must go home

On a New York City Sunday
When the lights are low

That's okay I don't mind
We're just trying to have a little fun

Grab her hand give her a spin
And tell her she's the only one

Buy her a drink she looks good in pink
Yeah we're all, trying to have a little fun
Track Name: Go and Find the Wine
Just watch the wind
Don't hit the breaks
It ain't too late babe
No it ain't too late

To go and find the wine

That's your brothers car
I never seen in before
It ain't too late babe
No it ain't too late

To go and find the wine
It's about the time

The sun is ours
Once it sets
It's too early baby
Too early for that

Go and find the wine
It's about the time

Let's get drunk
For old time's sake
Mess around
No it ain't too late
To watch me burn
Out back again
Grab the corkscrew baby
Oh, lets give it a rest

Go and find the wine
It's about the time
That's your brother's car
I never seen it before
Track Name: Magdalene
Fall into the blue skies
Fall into the sea
Fallen just to kill time
Fallen into me

Sixth Avenue's the west side
It's chilly in the streets
I'm walking just to kill time
Walking into me

I'm broken down at first light
Broke down on my knees
Broken just to kill time
Broken out of me

The fireplace is empty
She sleeps on satin sheets
Running to the countdown
Of her little disbelief

Little Magdalene

Will I ever see you again?
Track Name: Linger
There's a place I like to go
The spirit's thick where the sunset hits
And everyone I know
Comes around to be a part of it

Laziness, a pack of six
Afternoons and cigarettes
The girl I knew could sing the best
Melody went like this

Linger on the evening's past
Hold me we'll make this last
As we walk into the moon

The waves are crashing in
And time is running out
This life we're spinning in
Is foaming at the mouth

And if you see the other side tonight
Somewhere in the firelight
Won't you come along?

Linger on the evening's past
Hold me we'll make this last
As we walk into the moon
