Band Of Skulls – Light Of The Morning

There was a time when a three minute song was a symphony. This collection of musicians has resurrected that skill, and I am so happy to listen. I’m living in a full tower of 32 ice cream flavors, complete with dripping chocolate, strawberries, and pineapple. The song starts off with a guitar riffing along with the narrator, and quickly develops into a whole band ear feast. At first the guitar continues riffing as the drummer begins a dance of ageless wonder, but then the drummer seeks infinite wisdom as the flails. The false ending quickly leads to a full-powered symphony of guitar, bass, and drums finding clarity and light atop a mountain. Rock and roll dreams live on. Shoutouts for I Know What I Am, Patterns, Bomb, Blood, and the dream pop summertime hit Fires. Band Of Skulls
