“An elegant bridge between folk and classic indie rock.” — All Things Go
The Morning Yells is a new Los Angeles-based band that evolved from the brother-sister duo Phil and Lu (Phil and Laura Stancil), which released its debut album Mood Rock (“True emotion and reminiscence,” said The Line of Best Fit) in late 2016. The siblings, who have been playing music together their entire lives, are now joined by fellow multi-instrumentalists Trevor Smith and Curran McDowell to form The Morning Yells. The foursome will release a five-song EP “Proper Wilted” on October 6th. “She Got Time,” the first single from the collection is streaming now, after recently premiering via music discovery website All Things Go.
“We grew up in a family band, playing roots-rock and folk music at festivals and local watering holes throughout Michigan, where we’re originally from,” says Phil, whose warm and reedy tone defines the vocals on the EP. “Our Dad taught us everything we know about music, and we fell in love with Beach Boys, America and The Moody Blues by digging through his record collection.”
“Proper Wilted” was recorded by Mark Rains, best-known for his work with artists as diverse as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Waylon Jennings, which goes a long way towards explaining the sound of The Morning Yells.
In the span of a mere five songs, the band adeptly covers a variety of genres, with each member easily jumping from piano, to guitar, to bass. All four contribute to the songwriting.
Although a short set, “Proper Wilted” is full of highlights, notably on its lead single “She Got Time,” a track that, despite the Stancil’s assertion that it had been tossed around for years, sounds completely inspired.
“It didn't find a place until The Morning Yells became a group, but it definitely is the strongest example of our style at this point,” Phil says. The Morning Yells is currently working on a second EP, and will continue to perform in and around Los Angeles throughout the rest of 2017.
“Proper Wilted,” the debut EP by The Morning Yells arrives on Oct. 6th, 2017 preceded by the single “She Got Time,” streaming now. Members of The Morning Yells are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
