Inspired by The Smiths, “Goodbye Horses,” and great American murder ballads…

Have you heard of Early Morning Rebel? You may not think you know them now, but we'd place a bet that you have in fact heard them. The Los Angeles- based pop trio have been gathering hype since 2013 when their single "Life Boat" laded a spot on the hit TV series Grey's Anatomy. The buzz has continued since their television exposure, and these guys reached out to us with the debut their single "Shallow Breath," off their upcoming Life Boat EP.

Starting low and haunting, the vocals and staccato guitar are the backbone of this dark ballad. The delicately layered drums, organs and echoing vocals as well as the melodies are infectious and we can't wait to hear the rest of the EP.

Nathan Blumenfeld-James of Early Morning Rebel refers to “Shallow Breath” as “A forbidden love song inspired by The Smiths,‘Goodbye Horses,’ and great American murder ballads.”

Make sure to mark your calendars, since the Life Boat EP is due out April 29th. Keep up with the band on Facebook HERE and Twitter HERE.
