Bernhoft's "The Morning Comes" EP Is Inspiring
Bernhoft is a man that just knows how to naturally make people groove whether they'd like to or not. The Morning Comes EP is now here via Big Picnic Records and is ready to be engulfed by your brain.
The Norwegian musician's latest EP is produced by Eivind Helgerød and Nicolay Tangen-Svennæs and is a collection of tunes that will enlighten your day. The title track starts out the EP and the morning metaphorically represents bliss of life as the funk begins right away. From there, "We Have A Dream," the next song in the tracklisting, sonically is a pop tune with a groovy bass line and plenty of backup vocals.
"I'm just as angry as Kendrick" breathes Bernhoft on "You Belong," one of the political moments on The Morning Comes. The lyrics in the 5 songs are surely something to take a look at. The final track "Little Ghost" is under two minutes long but is the biggest change-up on the whole release. Here the singer begs somebody to come back and it can be assumed that it is about death in some form. Another reminder of how true of an artist Bernhoft is.
On the lyrics, Bernhoft had to say:
“All the lyrics on the EP are characterized by profound doubts and ambivalences, about my own position, privileges, attitudes and choices. My worldview, at least the western world, and perception of humanity as such, is shaken.”
The musician continued on to say in a statement: "My attempt at defining what I’m doing has been contributing, through my music—but also how I look—to tear down some walls and build some bridges between people. I’ve wanted to make superficiality less important."
