The Los Angeles-based duo The Morning Birds recently released their second full-length album, The Quickening. Check out “Heart’s Desire” off the album below.
On the album’s creation, singer Jennifer Thorington recalls: “Sam [band-mate Samuel Markus] and I were sitting outside and he was strumming on the guitar … I was gazing off into the sky – there were thunder heads way off in the distance. I just began to sing ‘day breaks and the shadows run away, day breaks in a moment of silence and the thunderclouds are rollin…’ and Sam immediately started singing a counter melody and that’s how The Quickening was born.”
