Emerging singer/songwriter and guitarist Indya Love Stewart is the daughter of Eurythmics‘ Dave Stewart. Writing and performing as Indya Love, Stewart’s debut single, the self-produced “Good Morning” is centered around a hauntingly sparse arrangement in which the younger Stewart accompanies her gently plucked acoustic guitar with gently cooed vocals. Her father adds a bit of electric guitar for a bit of country twang.
Recorded at Bay Street Studios in the Caribbean, “Good Morning” manages to be a gorgeous and atmospheric track that upon repeated listens reveals an unsettling and much darker edge: it’s one part, cooed greeting to a lover upon waking up together in bed, one-part wistful reminiscence about a dysfunctional yet wildly passionate relationship and one-part classic murder ballad.
Continuing with the DIY ethos, the self-directed and self-shot, black and white video for “Good Morning” is inspired by Man Ray‘s work and evokes the brooding emotions at the heart of the song.
