Like a musical Voltron, the members of Hello Morning carved out their own musical identities in such acclaimed groups as Jonah, Smalltown Poets, Sappo, Boy Eats Drum Machine, and Chris Robley & The Fear of Heights. Those creative forces have now banded together as Hello Morning, a monstrous robot group of musicians united by their passion for good songs and years of camaraderie.
They make rousing, epic rock fused with post-modern synths and beats, matched by an infatuation with space-age sounds.
Hello Morning was born in 2007 when Kevin Breuner (Smalltown Poets) and Ben Sims (Sappo) began a new music project that would fulfill of their creative needs. They soon brought in Peter Swenson (Boy Eats Drum Machine, Chris Robley) to work with them. They knew they were on to something special but they needed the perfect singer to round out the band. Enter Henry Curl (Jonah), an highly lauded local talent who gave their ideas just the right melodic sheen they needed.
Maturing past the garage-rock elements that plague so many bands, Hello Morning’s sound has evolved into a compelling dramatic force. Incorporating an array of aural treats like xylophone, synth bass, electric piano, as well as guitar-via-Sputnik sounds, they are never content to make the same old songs. Seamlessly blending their influences ranging from the post-modern melodic aesthetic of Mew, the pop power of The Killers but with cajones, and the rhythmic intensity of Interpol, Hello Morning is immediately engaging and keeps you singing along.
