The Morning Birds Release “Hearts Desire” Video
LOS ANGELES (Apr. 16, 2011) — For The Morning Birds, music is a part of the rich lives they lead. Another vital part of those lives, which viewers get a peek into in their latest video “Heart’s Desire” is parenthood. “Heart’s Desire” has a home movies feel, and lets us all see Jennifer Thorington and Samuel Markus’ son, home and a bit of their hearts. The video is available now at: http://www.youtube.com/
The very personal video is set to The Morning Birds’ “Hearts Desire” which, at first listen could be taken as a song about romance, but in this context can also be about parental love. Scenes from the couple’s home, the beautiful mountains surrounding it and life within it give it an idyllic feel.
When you get out of your own way and let ideas flow, there is no limit to the things you will create. LA’s The Morning Birds, masters of synthesizing influences and inspiration, are following this philosophy and reaping the rewards. The duo’s second LP, The Quickening, out Apr. 26, aims to pass that inspiration on to listeners worldwide with passionate, soulful and uplifting songs.
The Quickening is a study in the power of contrast. While forming an uncanny mixture of sounds that embrace unlikely sources, the band’s sound is both familiar and mysterious, groovy yet mellow, profound but fun. It is often times ground breaking. Their powerful bass lines, lush harmonies and soulful strings are complimented by break beats, trumpets, and cascading keys while Thorington and Markus’ vocals unfold into a gentle blend as if Imogen Heap met Andre 3000.
Praise for The Morning Birds
"The two are a perfect complement to each other, weaving in and out of the others vocals and instrumentation, sharing verses and harmonizing on any chorus...They have the pure joy of life present in Matt and Kim, the polish of She and Him and the intensity of the White Stripes."
