The Morning EP was the first musical release of The Sun Kite, released a year ago today, July 7th, 2013. It has been slightly retouched with some small mastering and reverb changes, but otherwise remains the same as the day it was made.
The Morning EP is a concept EP, the first of three. There are both abstract and concrete elements represented within, including such elements as: light, fog, the concept of beginnings, the sun, awakenings, creation, early morning air, and birdsong. Each song on the EP does its best to meticulously stick to this theme, both lyrically as well as musically. Each and every instrument played on this EP was specially chosen and crafted to reflect either a slow but steady build of energy (such as the piano on "The Bluebird Mend", or the guitars on "Braving the Wind"), or a constant pulse of mellow noise (the doubled banjo on "Lantern", or the bass and ukuleles on "Ember Bed").
The following two EPs, "Noon" and "Night", can be listened to here: http://thesunkite.com/
