We’re delighted to be working with Melbourne’s Good Morning for the first time!

Good Morning are a two piece recording project made up of Stefan Blair (Gemini) and Liam Parsons (Aries) from Melbourne, Australia. The two met in high school and have been writing songs ever since. In 2013, they went halvies in a Foxtex 4 track tape machine; Good Morning is the result of that investment.

They have released two mildly received EPs, Shawcross and Glory, and some similarly received singles. In a live setting they are joined by James Macleod (Libra) and John Considine (Sagittarius). Together they have performed in the United States at CMJ Music Marathon and most of Australia.

Career highlights include being unfavourably compared to Mac DeMarco a lot, that time Urban Outfitters asked to play their music in stores and when Tyler, the Creator tweeted the cover of Shawcross.

This July, Melbourne-based independent label Bedroom Suck Records will re-issue these two beautifully produced and incredibly catchy records on one 12-inch vinyl package.

‘The slow tempo and gentle instrumentals are simply mesmerizing’ – The Fader

‘Evoking both the hazy, slacker tones of Captured Tracks superstar Mac DeMarco with the bittersweet bossa nova act Little Joy … layering sliding guitar ditties and mellifluous harmonies over fuzzy guitar strumming’ – SPIN

Local support comes from Secret Admirer, the solo project from Nick Ainsworth of Former Bullies and Dinner Party fame. In 2016 he released a 20-song self-titled tape via Belfast’s CF Records.
