"Room Thirteen Review"

Morning Lane boast plenty of work with big names between then, but that's never enough alone for a formula for success. Thankfully their songs are equally strong as their CVs with a cool edgy feel and sincere vocals steering them towards a delightful indie tension.
Opener 'WtF' is an uplifting tune, despite its rousing cry of, "I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who doesn't know what the fuck is going on", there's a certain punk frustration ready to burst out through the occasional guitar screech. In comparison, 'Running Away' is a lilting song with plenty of power ballad potential constantly brimming beneath its forceful percussive heartbeat and searching vocals, in the end it never quite reaches that explosive climax though, settling for a mellow refrain.
'On The Road' is an aching number that tears blindly at its own soul, seeking some kind of peace that can't be found in the prowling, overdriven guitars. The chorus is a stirring affair, which should impress alone, even before a furious guitar solo in unleashed, like a wolf howling at the moon with melancholic passion. 'She Dancer' is a moving, upbeat love song that fizzes with the chemistry that a perfect song, let alone a perfect love needs. This is an epic tune to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.
Morning Lane's liberated tunes are a pleasure to hear and filled with the sparks that set a really good tune alight.

Morning Lane is a 4 piece London-based rock band currently playing around London venues, with recent shows at Barfly, The Borderline, The Marquee, and Water Rats in front of an ever growing crowd. With their songs attracting airplay across the UK and TV exposure with the TV series "Amazing Adventures of a Nobody" (licensed in over 100 countries around the world), Morning Lane are now attracting high profile support slots such Bloc Party guitarist' side-project "Pin Me Down" and Reef's new incarnation "Them is Me". The band has also recently been recommended for Glastonbury 2009.

Morning Lane are bassist Ross Butler, drummer Jean-Marc Valat, guitarist John Wilmshurst and singer Stephen Aravena. Formed from a desire to write music with passion and substance that would stand out from their contemporaries, Morning Lane's sound draws on many influences, yet remaining refreshingly unique.

Far from 'every song sounding the same as the last one', the band's music swings from dark, pounding grooves to fragile, heartfelt melodies. From sleazy, scuzzy riffs to exhilarating, uplifting choruses, as showcased on the band's recent 6 track EP Night & Day. Armed with their latest singles and videos Everything To Everyone and 9 Times a Day, a moody and intense affair packed with the band's trademark hooks and driving rhythm section, Morning Lane are currently on the lookout for managers and promoters to help bring the band to a global audience.
