Philadelphia foursome MorningSide are releasing their second full-length album The Abuse You Own later this year, but here at Insomnia Radio we couldn’t wait that long so we’ve got a sneaky preview for you.

MorningSide ‘Alone In Your Grave’ is a stellar example of what makes melodic indie rock great; hammering guitars, a soaring chorus, and a constant contrast of textures switching from sparse to dense instrumentation all come together to make a well polished, passionate, anthemic tune. Reminiscent of the post-grunge of the early noughties, it has elements of Foo Fighters, some Creed-sounding riffs (except not s**t) and a bit of Bush. Plus, with an unexpected and excellent bit of slide guitar leading into the obligatory solo, MorningSide put a surprising twist on the song and add extra colour to this all-round great track.

It’s got a sound that left me nostalgic for my teenage years and a chorus that stayed with me for hours, so if this song is anything to go by, bring on the album!
