The Wheel Workers – “Morning Song”


Meshing dreamy nostalgic and anthemic rock vigor, “Morning Song” is a new track from Houston-based band The Wheel Workers. The single comes via their new album, Harbor, and recalls the classic guitar-driven rock of Sonic Youth and R.E.M. with an added contemporary psych-friendly punch.

The vocals launch into an anthemic vigor past the two-minute mark. “Waking up on my own,” the vocals ring out amidst resonating guitar tones, which tout a dynamic allure thereafter. Psych-friendly murmurs build cohesively into a playful percussive pulse and key-laden glistening, culminating in a distortion-friendly fervency and anthemic vocal reprisal that buzzes with satiating ’90s alt-rock nostalgia.
