Four in the Morning write sad songs for insomniacs. They write quiet songs to play loudly, stressful songs to sit and drink alone with, songs to walk the dog to, songs that ask you to fall into the speakers, and songs to help you feel a little more human. Or at least they try to.
Led by Irish singer-songwriter Kevin Dolan and surrounded by an eclectic group of genre defying musicians (Kiran Srinivasan, Dan Walwyn and Alex Lees), the band creates a fascinating blend of lyrical storytelling and musical experimentation. Together they provide a unique insight into living abroad, going quietly insane, and falling in love.
At the beginning of 2020, while on tour with Ainslie Wills and Leif Vollebekk, they met producer Jono Steer (Angie McMahon, Ainslie Wills, Leif Vollebekk). Thanks to a Yarra City grant, they worked with Steer throughout 2020 to create some of their most expressive and fully realised songs to date, set to be released mid 2021.
