There is a raw organic groove to the new single ‘Morning Comes’ from nipaluna/Hobart born wunderkind Abe Parsons, performing under the name Caelo, that is energising and radiant. We feel very honoured to premiere this buoyant track ahead of its general release tomorrow.
The acoustic crunch and ambulatory forward movement may remind one of the bluesy ramblings of Primal Scream or The Rolling Stones: a relaxed, comfortable and confidant attitude with a sonic shimmer. There’s a cinematic widescreen vista to this track that belies Parson’s youth, and it is amazing when you realise this is only his second release (see our review of his debut single ‘Tides’) .
What lifts this track into the stratosphere is Parson’s extraordinary vocal range, displaying an incredible creative and melodic scope over a thumping bass guitar riff.
‘Morning Comes’ provides mounting evidence that Caelo is a rising star with the same creative genes we have seen in other local Hobartian artists such as Christopher Coleman and the Great Escape and EWAH and the Vision of Paradise: an ability to write songs that seem reflect the wild untamed isle of Tasmania with its dramatic landscapes and history. It is released tomorrow and available through the link above and all the usual download/streaming sites.
Musicians on the recording are:
Abe Parsons – Vocals, Guitar
Thomas Skalicky – Bass, Guitar
Callum Kilpatrick – Piano
Albert Wyatt – Percussion
