Morgendust blends elements of alternative rock, pop, post-punk and some 80’s to create a unique and captivating indie rock sound. Think of War on Drugs, The Boxer Rebellion, Future Islands and Tears For Fears.
‘Morgendust are an amazing group of super-talented
musicians who collectively create musical magic.‘
Friends for some time, musically experienced and seasoned enough to tell a story or two. Also enough self knowledge and stage experience to realize ‘forever young’ is not the ultimate goal.
‘Forever young’ is not the ultimate goal to success.‘
Formed in 2018, they released two singles/videos in 2019.
Their debut EP was released Friday 13th 2019 at a sold out Hedon, Zwolle.
2020 & 2021 saw their initial plans dissolve by the pandemic and they adapted by releasing 4 singles, mostly recorded in isolation: Alien, Sundays, Hands and Easy Way Out.
In 2021 the Intercontinental Music Awards awarded them ‘Best of Europe’ in the category European Rock.
Mashup album & debut album
One year later (2022) they released ‘14’, a mashup album with 8 songs when they had the age of fourteen mixed with Morgendust originals. Including Don’t Give Up by Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush (with Cindy Oudshoorn - ex-Kayak) Alive & Kicking (Simple Minds) and Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode). Songs that were hits when they were 14 years old… At the same time they released a short 14 minute film about the making of 14.
In that same year Morgendust parted with their second drummer and started working on their much anticipated debut album with just the four of them. The album 'Morgendust' was released March 2023 in a sold out show at Hedon Zwolle.
Just before the album release Patrick Pozderski joined as a drummer. Together with his father on the bass; a family affair extraordinary!
