Geva Alon is a singer-songwriter from Israel, and this is his new album In The Morning Light. It has a gentle, dream-worldly start but eventually erupts into this all-powerful being with the additions of the electric guitar, solos and heavy, almost 80’s like drums beats. Taking influences from the likes of Band Of Horses and Fleet Foxes, In The Morning Light is a shining example on how to create beautiful music.
The opening track The Great Enlightenment is the lead single and it features a Neil Young/Paul Weller styled instrumentation. It’s slow tempo and hazy drawn out strums of the electric guitar against the acoustic guitar and drums creates the perfect soundtrack to any relaxation session. The track is uplifting, and Geva Alon’s similar vocal delivery to Neil Young fits in really well with the soft music, it’s a great song and a fantastic start to In The Morning Light.
The rest of the album delves into darker and heavier territories and produces some standout moments, but it still retains the soft, relaxed nature of the first half. Geva Alon has a wonderful voice and he has accompanied it with the best instrumentations possible. In The Morning Light is a great album and will certainly be played all year round.
