Weight is the first single from the eagerly anticipated self-titled debut album from Naarm (Melbourne) band Cyanide Thornton. Featuring members of Two Steps On The Water, the band was founded in early 2016 and has been steadily gaining traction in Melbourne’s alternative rock circuits.
While incorporating elements of folk and rock, Cyanide Thornton transcends its composite parts, moving into a space of raw emotion and fierce determination.
Ellah Blake (drums) and David Pesavento (bass) provide understated yet resolute punctuation for each song, holding together the music with a remarkable tenderness and affection, and providing a cradle for Sienna Thornton’s masterful and harrowing lyrics and guitar work.
Thornton’s voice is at once wistful and melancholic, painting narratives with a tender immediacy. The album evokes a sense of magical realism, with its lyrics transforming painfully human experiences of love and loss into magical and ethereal moments.
Good Morning aim to please. Besides being an incredibly friendly and charismatic band, they also have a mood which woozes and sways; like treacle slowly dripping off a spoon, if that visual could somehow become audible.
Pair that mood with crackling, lo-fi production, and you’re left with tapes that perhaps were only to be distributed to friends and family – intimate recordings of intimate thoughts, they’ll share them with you too, if you’d listen.
After 2017’s vinyl re-release of their first two EP’s, Good Morning returns to the wax (and your ears) with songs that express growth, confidence, and experimentation. No more Mac DeMarco comparison’s here, no siree.
