Good Morning

The Australians are coming out in full force. One of the continent’s finest bands, Melbourne duo Good Morning, announced their newest album “Barnyard” due out October 22nd via Polyvinyl, which arrives two years after their packed 2019 that saw the release of The Option and Basketball Breakups.

In addition to the album announcement, the band have released its lead single, ‘Country’. Written by frontman Liam Parsons, the track reflects on the singer’s desires when he was younger, and how they’ve panned out in adulthood.

Alongside the announcement was the duo’s newest single, “Country.” Over an infectious guitar riff that slowly builds into a folky bounce, Liam Parsons sings of wishing to return to a simpler life and younger desires. The entrancing video is set against the backdrop of Parson’s childhood: 1st Eltham Scouts Hall. “I was always too embarrassed to admit that I was a scout to my school friends, the same way I was too embarrassed to admit that I got piano lessons,” Parsons reveals. “Both of those things are ridiculous. Scouts is cool and so are piano lessons.” Ditto “Country.”

 The record was made “in slightly simpler times” at Wilco’s recording studio, The Loft, in Chicago over a five-day period.
