Bio

"Indie without the Mustaches, Rock without the Ego, Folk without the Overalls" The Mornings are one of Tasmania’s most well-known and hardest working bands. It's not often you go to see a local act and every single person in the room knows every single word of every single song… but that’s that The Mornings do. The Mornings started 2013 with a running leap, launching their newest EP 'Ribbons' with a 40+ date tour across Australia and New Zealand (including the bands first ever shows in WA and NT). This is off the back of two national tours in 2012 with appearances at The Falls Festival (TAS), Festival of the Sun (NSW) and the Soundscape Festival (TAS). This huge stream of shows in continuing into the summer with the band having just played two huge shows at Hobart's Playhouse theatre. As you may remember Triple J took Mornings frontman Samuel Cole to the 2012 Song Summit music conference to work with Wally De Backer (Gotye) and Adalita Srsen (Adalita, Magic Dirt. Taking the advice of these great Australian musicians on-board Sam returned to Mornings HQ to flesh these tracks out with rest of the band and bunked down at Oscars Treehouse recording studio up amongst the treetops of Mt Wellington to record. The result is the bands new EP 'Ribbons' and we're very excited to be able to share that with you now! Ribbons is available on iTunes and in hard copy at gigs.

Forever reliable for a jangling good time, The Mornings' latest tune is a nimbly orchestrated suburban narrative.

i love how real this song sounds - you can hear the honesty in Sam's voice, and it really shows the work of one talented musician in the rising. Keep an eye out - he's one of Tassie's finest up n comers.
