CHRIS OTHER — NEW MORNING

Chris Other — New Morning

⌾ LISTEN TO NEW MORNING BY CHRIS OTHER ⌾

As if whirring into being, ‘New Morning’ by Brooklyn composer Chris Other certainly feels like a beginning. Hushed room ambience sets the scene, like dust dancing in the air between shards of light lancing in from curtain cracks. Then again, with its greyscale tones and the sheafing sounds throughout, this could be a rainy morning. The piano is tentative, reflecting a gentle awakening of the senses after sleep — the touch of bare feet on floor, a pre-glasses glance around the room.

The title ‘New Morning’ does not necessarily equate to a “good” morning; this morning is new, signifying a starting afresh, putting something something behind its sunrise. The textured mechanics that Chris Other puts into this track does summon that feeling of timeworn memory, a tenderness. Or else it is the biological analogue to hearing an old PC jolting awake — fans cut the still air, processors creak, something beeps, just as a body lurches slowly into life.


  • 🔔 'New Morning' is taken from Chris Other's Til We Feel That Hope Again EP, which is out today (23rd April). You can stream the release or purchase it digitally from Bandcamp.
