[Listen] South of France - "Lost in the Morning"
Since the release of their debut EP Kings, Colorado duo South of France has undergone some huge changes. After announcing the name of their debut LP (it's titled Another Boring Sunrise) and releasing a teaser video, the band expanded to three members. During recording, though, one of the original members was replaced, only to see that third member leave. The band is back to being a duo, and now comprises of Jeff Cormack and Kelly Lueke, who have re-recorded and re-mixed the entirety of their recent work. They have brought in a drummer, Ryan Simpson, to expand their sound, and have even gotten their hands on producers Jeff and Raymond Richards, who have worked with band such as Local Natives.
Now that South of France finally seem to be on the right track, they've released the first single from their forthcoming debut full-length. Premiering on Listen Before You Buy, "Lost in the Morning" captures the carefree, summery sound made the band stand out in the first place, but there is now a sense of cohesiveness. Every shake of a tambourine, every snare hit, every line sung and every guitar string plucked sounds like it should be there, like it belongs, and this results in a much cleaner sound. Listen to the song below, and if you like what you hear then stay tuned for more on South of France in the coming months.
