The Morning Benders

The Morning Benders are a 4-piece indie rock outfit coming from the bay area. The band consists of Chris Chu (vocals, guitar), Van Pierszalowski (guitar), Tom Peyton (drums), and Leo Kremer (bass). Started by Chu and Pierszalowski, the band played many live shows and released the excellent EP "Loose Change". The Morning Benders create very enjoyable tunes, the melodies that get stuck to your ears with the first listening. The electric guitar lead songs incorporate a portion of a retro sound reponsible for the feeling of melancholy you get listening the Morning Benders. From the other side, the acoustic songs are positively emotional, having an acoustic guitar and Chris's voice in the first plan. The impression is that the Morning Benders posses the spirit and the skills to create a significant break through on the indie pop scene. I hope that moment will come soon.
