One of New York City's finest and most promising soul-pop acts Lawrence chomp down on old-school blues, funk and classic jazz on their latest album Breakfast, a high-protein, energy-packed 12-track project. With songs like Do You Wanna Do Nothing with Me?, Me & You and their new single Misty Morning (the video of which premieres exclusively today), the album will assuredly fuel your day. Food metaphors aside, the duo - comprised of siblings Clyde Lawrence, 22, and Gracie Lawrence, 19 - are stamping modern pop with a healthy dose of groovy authenticity.
"'Misty Morning' is a song about moving on. Specifically for me, it’s about finishing school and ending a relationship," Gracie, who penned the standout track, shares with Popdust. "So often, songs over-simplify these feelings as either 'you broke my heart' or 'I’m so over you.' But in my experience, it’s more of a foggy (misty…?) mix of emotions — melancholy but with a silver lining — and hopefully that comes through in the song."
For the video, the two use the Big Apple as the backdrop, as they sojourn through a dull gray morning and find moments of strength. "This video tries to capture that same ambivalent energy, and paints a picture of how we move on from these changes in our family: by taking a walk on our block and picking up breakfast and bandmates along the way.”
