Destruction Songs, was recorded in producer/engineer Andy Baldwin’s (Bjork, St. Lucia, HAERTS, Morcheeba) cabin studio in upstate New York. Recorded mostly live over the course of a long weekend – with some additional recording done at Baldwin’s Brooklyn studio, Rola Pola. Although the music of The Morning Sea sounds upbeat and sunny at times, there is an underlying melancholy that runs through some of the tracks, with themes of hope, despair, love, loss, regret, and redemption. The album will be self-released by the band on November 2.

The Morning Sea drops new music video via New Noise

September 25 - New Noise ran the premiere of The Morning Sea’s music video for their song “(I’ve invented a) Maneuver” – watch it below. The track is taken from the band’s album Destruction Songs, which is scheduled to be released later this Fall.

The band commented on the video:

The video for ‘(I’ve invented a) Maneuver’ is a DIY dance party. Featuring members of The Morning Sea and others dancing in black and white with flashes of color, the footage was culled together through crowd-sourced video submissions from friends and followers via a call-to-action on social media. The song itself arrived one day on a lark in the rehearsal room, when the band started riffing on an old bit by the comedian Eddie Izzard about the invention of the Heimlich Maneuver. We decided the best way to compliment this song which was born out of pure joy and silliness would be with a music video that exudes the same spirit.Destruction Songs, the third album by The Morning Sea, was recorded in producer/engineer Andy Baldwin’s (Bjork, St. Lucia, HAERTS, Morcheeba) cabin studio in upstate New York. Recorded mostly live over the course of a long weekend – with some additional recording done at Baldwin’s Brooklyn studio, Rola Pola – these songs capture the band in their most vibrant and creative state, feeding off of each other’s impulses and recreating the energetic vibe of their live shows. Musically the album is upbeat and electrifying, save for the final track which serves as a sort of cool-down reflection on what’s come before. Meanwhile, singer/songwriter Adam Cohen’s lyrics cover themes of hope, despair, love, loss, regret, and redemption.
