Morgendust

Full Album show of October 9, 2019
with the Album: Storm Will Come

Forty six. The average age. The perfect age to start a band. Musically skilled, no more stagefright and enough experience in life to tell a story. Too old for hipster hawaiian shirts, moustaches, millennial whoops or hey-hey-ho festival anthems. So if you're looking for a band that’s trying to be meta about a captivating blend of literate, visceral indie rock with propulsive, anthemic choruses, please stop reading. ‘You can label our style as modern 80’s indie rock or even midlife rock.’ So music for old people? No f*-ing way. Morgendust is not a ‘bluesband’, absolutely no ‘tribute band’, they don’t play classic rock and they’re not into bearded, be-flanneled ersatz blues or overly slow and sensitive singer songwriter songs. But they like to tell stories.
Stories about this world. Energetic, warm, melancholic and sometimes critical. About the stupid things in life, dreams, social themes, politics and yes: also about love. And lot’s of other stuff that is important at a certain age. ‘Although our lead singer is a drummer too we don’t do that occasional floor tom or two on stage...’ Grown up in the 80’s they love the sounds of this golden era; it’s in their blood. Talk Talk, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and Peter Gabriel. Nowadays they get inspired by everything good like Radiohead, Editors, Elbow & well, just good music... Label it ‘modern 80’s style dark-edged indie rock (they’re really indie, no record labels) or even midlife rock. Whatever you label it, it’s all about making music, the best thing in life to do since they were born. In the past they all made music in several bands like Soulstar, City Jam & Band of Glory and professionally as hired guns in the commercial music industry. With PTS, three of five band members did a European tour with Marillion in the late 90’s. ‘We don’t do mic checks and shout our own name.
We are 98% autotune free.’ Five street smart musicians who stand out in the studio and also live on stage. Their accessible, moody and energetic songs make Morgendust an ideal act for festivals and music venues. Formed in 2018, they released in 2019 two singles and their debut EP will be released Friday 13th 2019 at Hedon, Zwolle. Morgendust: Marco de Haan (lead vocals & guitars) Ron van Kruistum (guitars & vocals) Iwan Blokzijl (keyboards & vocals) Dario Pozderski (bass & vocals) Job Noordmans (drums & percussion).
About the Album "Songs about relationships, growing older, ideologies, politics, religion and yes, about love. The title track takes you on a trip inspired by the ‘butterfly-effect’: small causes may have large effects. Like the flapping of the wings of a butterfly can result in a tornado. A fascinating subject for a song. Songs about expectations, the feeling of being deceived and continues warnings about nonchalance. How to react on looking back and realising your ‘now’ doesn’t meet the expectations of your childhood. And of course the universal theme of all of us in this world, love. Being OK with your relationship but still living with doubt despite your rock solid love.
Love loses again and again."

Featured Artist of May 24, 2019
with the song: Kind Of Blues
 
Take a deep dive in the golden era of the 80’s mixed with modern dark-edged rock.
Energetic, warm, melancholic and critical is what you can expect from Morgendust, an indie rock band from Zwolle, the Netherlands. The sonic cues of Tears for Fears, Pink Floyd, Talk Talk, Duran Duran (can you discover a little Simon Lebon?) and Peter Gabriel combined with influences of contemporary bands like Editors and Radiohead make Morgendust the perfect blend of the 80’s and today.
Formed in 2018, drummer Marco de Haan and keyboardist/producer Iwan Blokzijl (both former electro rock band Soulstar) took their songwriting skills to a different level. ‘It became clear after just a few demos we had something going on’, says Marco, now frontman and lead singer. ‘Less raw than Soulstar, catchier and a little more ‘poppy’ with the warm organic sounds and synths of the 80’s I grew up with’, says Iwan with a cheeky smile.

Marco de Haan (lead vocals, guitars)
Ron van Kruistum (guitars, backing vocals)
Iwan Blokzijl (keyboards, backing vocals)
