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.

Morningblind- The Spring EP 2017

 

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.

Aquest projecte va veure la llum a principis del 2017, amb la publicació del nostre EP. Enguany estem gravant el nostre primer LP, combinant el treball a l’estudi de gravació amb els concerts a casa nostra i a l’estranger.

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 are currently recording our first LP, combining work in the recording studio with live concerts at home and abroad.
