Morning Fame - Blinded


Morning Fame – Blinded

2011, Morning Fame
Morning Fame is a Toronto-based Americana/rock quartet that sounds like a cross between Blue Rodeo and The Gin Blossoms.  Led by vocalist Vik Kapur and guitar Joe Liranzo, Morning Fame recently recorded their debut single, “Blinded”, at Metalworks Studio in Toronto.  “Blinded” has a vaguely spiritual feel to it.  The search that Kapur sings about might be a secular one, but the references to the creation of souls and sin offer clues to the intent.  Musically it’s a more-than-competent arrangement; a smooth sounding song with real commercial potential and strong guitar work.  This is the first offering from Morning Fame, but would seem to suggest a lot of promise.  It’s certainly enough to make us, and you, want to see what comes next from Morning Fame.
