The Weight of the World LP 2020

The debut album from Barcelona-based band Morningblind, composed and arranged by Sandra Bossy-Retti with lyrics by Richard Hayden and Sandra Bossy-Retti. The LP starts out with the changing rhythms and tempos of the art-rock-influenced, eponymous opening track and progresses through spare, lo-fi, synth-soaked songs using looped and live ukuleles and jangling guitars to arrive at the central stand-out track The Caller and then journeys back again wearing its folk influences on its sleeve, until the final, dream-like sumptuousness of the album’s closer – Winter Dance. Throughout Sandra's vocals soar, adding emotional heft to songs that seek to uncover the beauty, glory that lies beneath our sometimes troubled relationships with each other and the world we live in.

About Us

morningblind és la col·laboració entre la cantautora catalana Sandra Bossy-Retti i el lletrista anglès Richard Hayden, que desemboca en un estil on conflueixen diverses influències: folk, jazz, pop, rock i música clàssica.

El nostre projecte veu la llum a principis del 2017, amb la publicació del EP, ¨The Spring¨. Hem anat combinant el treball a l’estudi de gravació amb els concerts a casa nostra i a l’estranger, i després de l'estrena amb banda del nostre primer LP, ¨The Weight of the World¨, al març del 2020, just abans del confinament, ens hem dedicat a treballar el nostre material en format de duo, amb nous arranjaments pels temes antics i noves cançons que recopilarem al segon LP.

 

Comptem ara amb la col.laboració del Gat, multi-instrumentista i fundador del segell discogràfic independent català G33G Records, el qual editarà el nostre primer single, "Thin Woman", l'onzena entrega de la sèrie Tarot del segell, que sortirà en breu en vinil.

​​​morningblind is a collaboration between Catalan singer-songwriter Sandra Bossy Retti and British lyricist Richard Hayden, based in Catalunya. The result is a style that draws from folk, jazz, pop, rock and classical influences.

​This project started life with the release of an EP in 2017. We're currently woking on our second LP, combining work in the recording studio with live concerts at home and abroad. Gat is our new collaborator working as a duo with Sandra, He's also the founder of the independent Catalan record label G33G Records which will release our first vinyl single "Thin Woman".
