Live Concert Photography: Good Morning and Elizabeth at Baby’s All Right 10/23/19
Good Morning is a rapidly rising Melbourne, Australia-based indie rock act featuring core duo Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons, with touring members John Considine and Joe Alexander. The Aussie indie rock act can trace their origins back to 2013 when its founding duo split the cost of a Fostex four track tape machine and started writing and recording music together. The end result was their debut EP, 2014’s Shawcross, which featured “Don’t Come Home Today” and “Warned You,” which was co-signed by Tyler the Creator and received over 27 million Spotify streams.
Building upon a growing profile both nationally and internationally, the band released the “A Vessel”/”Radiovoice” and “On The Street”/”You” singles in 2015, which they followed up with their sophomore EP, 2016’s Glory. The band ended 2016 with the release of the “Step Aside”/”Ooppsie” single, which features some of their most streamed tracks on Spotify.
In 2017, Good Morning signed with Melbourne-bass indie label Bedroom Suck Records, who re-issued the Shawcross and Glory EPs in a single package known as Glorcross or Shawcross. The Melbourne-based indie label released the band’s full-length debut Prize//Reward,which featured “Mirror Freak,” Escalator,” “Just a Man” and “For a Little While.” Adding to a growing profile, A$AP Rocky sampled “Don’t Come Home Today” on “Kids Turned Out Fine,” off that year’s Testing.
Earlier this year, Good Morning self-released their sophomore album The Option and Basketball Breakups earlier this year, which the Aussie indie act supported with a handful of Stateside dates, including a career-spanning stop at Baby’s All Right last month. Totally Mild‘s former frontperson and rising pop star Elizabeth opened. Check out photos from the show below.
Starting off her musical career as the frontperson and primary songwriter of acclaimed Melbourne, Australia-based pop act Totally Mild, an act that recorded two critically applauded albums before splitting up, the rapidly rising Aussie pop artist Elizabeth has stepped out into the limelight as a solo artist. As a solo artist, Elizabeth has been able to reimagine and reinvent who she is an artist — essentially turning herself into the patron saint of anguish, heartbreak and woe. That period of reinvention has led the rapidly rising Aussie pop artist to develop a completely unique sound, apart from her previously released work.
Now, as you may recall, Elizabeth’s highly-anticipated solo, full-length debut The Wonderful World of Nature was released earlier this month through Our Golden Friend and from album singles like the shimmering and mournful “beautiful baby,” and “meander” the album’s material are primarily ballads centered around the Aussie pop artist’s aching heartbreak, imbued with lingering and confusion emotions — primarily desire, lust, shame, guilt and uncertainty.
Her opening set at Baby’s All Right was centered around the material from the then-unreleased album.
