After breaking through US Radio last year, The Morning Episodes kick off 2014 on a high with the release of “Until the Sunrise” -- a collaboration with actress / singer Solenn Heussaff. The track is the official theme song of Solenn’s new movie “Mumbai Love”, which is hitting theaters this January.
The film was directed by Benito Bautista, produced by Capestone Pictures in assoc. with Wanderlustproject Films and is being distributed by Solar Entertainment.
“Until the Sunrise” is a breath of fresh air to the local music scene with its unique elements, arrangement and delivery. According to band frontman Miguel Escueta most of the song was written using an iPad. “Its amazing how that square piece of technology can help you so much creatively”, he shares. “Solenn heard the demo more than a year ago through a common friend and she got in touch with me right away, saying that she wanted to work on it together. Her voice was just perfect for it and it turns out that the song sounded even better as a duet.”
In the early stages of filming “Mumbai Love” Solenn shared the song with director Benito Bautista and producer Emma Francisco. They immediately fell in love with the track and, at that instant, knew that they had just found their theme song for the film. They shot the music video while filming the movie, in between all the takes in several locations. It can now be viewed online via Youtube (youtube.com/wanderlustproject) and it set to air on MYX this week.
“Until the Sunrise” is available exclusively via iTunes, released by MCA Music Inc.
In mid 2013, the Morning Episodes, in partnership with their LA based label Slydoggie Productions and Music PR Firm The Planetary Group, launched their first ever US College Radio Campaign. Since then, songs from the band's current album "Never Felt So Alive" have been receiving airplay on 100 different college radio stations across all 50 states in America.
The album hit the Top 25 charts at three stations, with peaks at WIPZ in Kenosha, Wisconsin (#8), KRZA in Alamosa Colorado (#10) and WVPH in Piscataway, New Jersey (#25). Some of their songs were also featured on long time US Drama “The Young and The Restless” and TV Promos by the CBS Network.
The Morning Episodes' album Never Felt So Alive is available digitally via iTunes. CDs are also available at Odyssey Music Stores. This release is done via MCA Music Inc. and brought to you by VANS, Audio Technica, Police, Rayban, Deca Homes, Dental First and Southern Musician.
