Singer/songwriter Morly (aka Katy Morley) returns with new strength and shares her new heartfelt lyric video for her single, “Twain Harte.” This is her first new material as Morly since 2017.
She released her first EP, In Defense of My Muse in 2015, Something More Holy in 2016, then Sleeping In My Own Bed in 2017. She spent some necessary time away from the public eye as she battled chronic illness.
“Twain Harte” arose as she began falling in love with someone across the Atlantic. She decided to relocate from Los Angeles to London to year, joining her partner, who was “a beam of light irrupting into the darkness of deteriorating health.
I love the simplicity and heartfeltness of this track. Morly‘s sweet, smooth vocals are accompanied by Jesse Carmichael on piano, while Adam Macdougall is on the organ. Strings and bass swirl by producer Chris Stracey (Bag Raiders).
“I think Bob Dylan’s ‘Mama, You Been On My Mind’ was reverberating through me as I wrote ‘Twain Harte'” she notes. “The power of a really simple small song, a single thought distilled and magnified. I was listening to a lot of Sade and old jazz recordings at the time as well, which I think gave me the gumption to write a pure, unapologetic love song.”
