Let It Rain Dad Rock With Lachlan X. Morris' Latest
Championed as the Hunter Valley region's finest quality exporter of Dad Rock, Lachlan X. Morris' slow burning reputation for song writing and vintage sounds peaked and crashed across the DIY scene last year with the release of the phenomenal Ouija Board Heartbreak Tambourine. Now, picked up from the album's cutting room floor, dusted off and given new life Morris has released Every Time It Rains.
If you took Father John Misty's head out of his own arse, cleaned up his lips and made him kiss Bruce Springsteen the resulting passion would most likely be Lachlan X. Morris' Every Time It Rains. A slow burning epic that soars whilst remaining reserved on the back of long rung chords, an intangible cool control in Morris' voice and the ever presence of beautiful harmony from Grace Turner. Every Time It Rains is equal parts relaxing and uplifting, despite the melancholy, in a song that will ultimately stay with you for quite a while.
Lyrically Every Time It Rains is a story of emo superheroes. The tale of two lovers, lashed full of flaws and mental health issues (represented in the form of super powers) unfolds and entangles the listener. Lyrics of hope hold heavy as the song rings out and beckons you to play it again.
It's clever, ever interesting and beautiful.
