Australian duo Good Morning return today with first new music in two years with double release ‘Mollyduker / Keep It’ and announce their Victorian tour dates this June.
The pastoral, rangy ‘Mollyduker’, sung by Stefan, is a quintessential driving song, its steady, wiry groove hardly letting up over the course of its runtime. The song’s ease belies its tense imagery: drunken spews, held tongues, and anxiety tokens abound. ‘Keep It’, sung by Liam, is no less inviting and no less heavy with psychic weight. A meditation on failure, drinking, and aging, 'Keep It' is laden with piano and warm, warping guitar — soft-edged counterweights to the severed heads and flooding waters of the song’s lyrics.
The news comes with the announcement of the pairs signing to Polyvinyl Records (USA/ROW) joining their eclectic roster including the likes of Alvvays, Kero Kero Bonito, STRFKR, Julia Jacklin, and more. The two-track will also be coming out on the band’s own imprint, Good Morning Music Company Worldwide via Virgin Music Australia.
