The Morning Herald
Stomping out of Philadelphia in 2016, The Morning Herald combine early 2000’s indie sleaze, heart-on-your-sleeve rock, and pulsing bedroom synth into an original and anthemic new sound. The band cut their teeth performing frat basements and bars while studying at Villanova University, before moving to Boston’s Back Bay to settle-in post-grad and hone their songwriting. In 2021, they released their debut studio album Rounder, a conceptual love letter to nights out on the town while the world was still largely in lockdown. Two years later, the band has returned with their follow-up LP, Goldstar, a breakup album in its truest sense, made full with cutting weirdo pop and danceable indie grooves. Working with Mark Watter of Headroom Studios (Mt. Joy, Alex G), the band has created an album that marries the sleek production of Tame Impala with the vocal prowess of Arctic Monkeys and the bold ambition of Arcade Fire.
