The New Morning Sunrise

The New Morning Sunrise

Burn Forever Records

4.25/5 stars

Imagine yourself on a smoky dancefloor. A stranger stumbles towards you and drunkenly asks you for a dance. A month later, the two of you are married, on your way to share a happy life together, when your lover dies tragically and horrifically. Soon you receive a strange, epic love letter. That’s what this album is like. It’s beautiful, weird, and entrancing, all of its idiosyncrasies immediately visible, but irresistibly wonderful at every turn. Waltzing slowly in hazy fog, the eponymous debut full-length from the Erie ensemble sounds spectacularly spooky. With his bass vocals somewhere between Johnny Cash and Nick Cave, singer Gabe Poland weaves together nine sorrowful tales for a truly evocative album. Poland, along with his brother Josiah on keyboards and mandolin, Bassist David DeFranco, and drummer Bryan Greene, fill the band’s soundscapes, artfully crafting every haunting note. The psychedelic folk brilliance shines through like the lights of a UFO reflected in a tall glass of whiskey. Let this album be a warbling soundtrack to your dark and stormy nights.
