Sparkadia - Morning Light

Sparkadia - Morning Light
Formed by childhood friends, 25-year-olds Alex Burnett (vocals, guitar) and Dave Hall, (drums) in 2004, the Sydney four-piece 'Sparkadia' became a reality with the addition of Nick Rabone (bass) and Tiffany Preece (keyboards, guitar, vocals) Together, they write modern pop songs, pop songs that explode and shimmer with choruses that never leave your head and hooks that floor you on the first listen. 'Postcards' offers up a dozen snapshots of life that meld bittersweet lyrics and floating melodies with a sunny spin on heartbreak.

"Many of the songs on this album are postcards I wish I had sent, and others are ones I really wish I didn’t have to send," says Alex. Each track was written in a different room in a different city over the past four years, before being affixed with a stamp and sent to the renowned Miloco Studios in London, where producer extraordinaire Ben Hillier (Blur, Depeche Mode, Doves) applied his deft production hand to give the album an expansive, cinematic feel.

About this track...

Their first single, 'Morning Light', had huge support from triple j, and helped their debut EP 'Things Behind The Sun' sell-out instantly. Even though they'd been playing music together since they were 13, 'Morning Light' was actually the first song Alex and Dave wrote together as Sparkadia in 2004.
