Lead singer and songwriter Josh Morrison is looking to replicate his bands former glory and venture with a new, transfigured look. “Early in 2017, I hope to give the attention deserved to my single ‘Soul Doctor,’” says Morrison.
The funk, rock group from Ipswich saw success on the Queensland music scene in 2012. This included countless gigs throughout Brisbane suburbs and winning the Battle of the Bands.
Using the momentum of this success, Morrison and the band recorded an EP at ‘Studio Truth’ in Brisbane with acclaimed producer Tyson Ruth.
Morrison says, “Ruth was able to transform me from a bedroom musician with an acoustic guitar, to a recording artist.” Together they created an EP which encompassed all of which the band had hoped.
As they continued, the group struggled to positively channel their diverse visions and inevitably disbanded in 2013.
For Morrison, it was love that intervened.
Morrison met his soon to be wife and supporting vocalist Roelien and they dared to dream new dreams.
‘Another Language’ was reinvigorated by this love and saw a reformation earlier this year. This was facilitated upon invitation to perform at Studio 188, supporting ‘Until Home’ for their single launch.
Josh and Roelien Morrison assembled a rhythm section featuring Chris Muir, Stu Hastings and Anthony Gilbert and ‘Another Language’ was reborn.
When asked about the feeling of returning to the stage with a new group Josh Morrison said, “it makes songs that you have played a thousand times feel like you are playing it again for the first time.” He continued, “we are bringing to life these songs I recorded back in 2012.”
Whilst ‘Another Language’ looks to move forward with this new look, their roots will remain with Morrisons perennial vision. “Let’s sing about values that come from a gospel centred on Jesus Christ – lyrical ideas that are shaped by my relationship and walk with God.”
With the plan to be releasing new music soon the grungy rock group have a few gigs coming up. Whilst drawing from influences such as John Mayer and DC Talk, Morrison says you can expect “a hurricane of funk and rock with a blur of blues. Words that speak of an adventure with God. A journey of faith.”
Catch ‘Another Language’ before their much anticipated debut release with their upcoming gig at the Phoenix Arts Theatre. They will be supporting Melbourne melodic/hard-core group, Spectral Fires as they tour their upcoming EP ‘Wayfarer.’
