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.
