'Bass player Dario fled his homeland Bosnia to a new life in the Netherlands 25 years ago.'

"This year we celebrate 75 years living in freedom. A perfect moment for Morgendust to release their new single Alien, a song about the long, hard road refugees still have to take to find a new but uncertain future. To live in freedom is something to care about and not to take for granted, something Dario can relate to.

Dario arrives in Holland in 1995, because his identity suddenly matters, a lot! He tries to escape ‘the lunatics” as he calls them, but they grow in numbers and he has to run, because he refuses to fight his own people. With only a bass in two parts in a rucksack he reaches Holland and finds a place in an AZC, a shelter for refugees of war.

“Here I sit in an AZC with nothing to do, which I cannot stand! Around that time I visit the city-library often to listen to music. I notice a note on the wall wich says: “Band PTS needs bass player” I audition and I’m in.... Now, 25 years later, with two of the former PTS-members I still make music in Morgendust.”  

Watch and listen here to the new pre-release video Alien by Morgendust, their third single since February 2019."

All the things I had in life
N
ow I see that they are
Gone away for good
Everything I once controlled
When I find out that it’s
Gone away for good

Came here
B
y plastic 
As tame sheep
The questions
The screaming
The waiting in line

[chorus]
Alien 
Nations apart
Maybe we’re
Back to the start
Back to the start

Just the scent of neighborhood
Brings a tear to me it’s
Gone away for good
All the colors in the sky
Are just pictures in my mind

Saw how
T
he money
C
an blind you
S
educe you
Betray you
A
nd makes you insane

[chorus]
Alien
Nations apart
Maybe we’re
Back to the start (2x)

[speech Jesse Jackson]

If in my high moments, I have done some good, offered some service,
shed some light, healed some wounds, rekindled some hope, or stirred someone from apathy and indifference, or in any way along the way helped somebody, then this campaign has not been in vain. 

Back to the start (5x)

‘You can label our style as modern 80’s indie rock.’

80's style indierock

With stories about this world. Energetic, warm, melancholic and sometimes critical. Grown up in the 80’s, they love the sounds of this golden era; it’s in their blood. Talk Talk, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and Peter Gabriel. Nowadays they get inspired by everything good like Radiohead, Editors, Elbow, Tame Impala & well, just good music.

Energetic, driving and diverse

Musically skilled, no stagefright and with enough experience in life to tell a good story or two. So old music for old people? No f*-ing way. Energetic, driving and diverse, they bring high quality musical magic!

As we grew up in the 80’s we love the sounds of this golden era, it’s in our blood. We listened to Talk Talk, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and Peter Gabriel. Nowadays we listen to Radiohead, Editors, Elbow & everything new that’s just good music.

Label it ‘modern 80’s style dark-edged indie rock (they’re really indie, no record labels). Whatever you label it, it’s all about making music, the best thing in life to do since they were born.

In the past they all made music in several bands like Soulstar, City Jam & Band of Glory and professionally as hired guns in the commercial music industry. With PTS, three of five band members played with Marillion in the late 90’s.

We don’t do mic checks and shout our own name.
We’re 98% autotune free.
