Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Morphine - The Ninjas
Australian indie garage rock band The Ninjas have one hell of a single in "Morphine". Frontman Josh Stewart calls the song an "a slow burning ode to hillbilly heroin", and...frankly I cannot describe it better than that...
Hear "Morphine" for yourself below:
The Ninjas feel like the best parts of Oasis with a bit more grunge on it; "Morphine" is a song that I have found almost impossible not to sing along to when I hear it now. Stewart's resigned lyrics fit the part beautifully in making a song that is the perfect listen on a bad day, when you just want to sit on a deck with a drink and forget about the rest of the day.
Actually, "Morphine" is essentially the act of "unwinding after a long day" in song form.
And it's damn good.
Unfortunately, back in February, The Ninjas broke up, so I'm afraid you are just going to have to enjoy "Morphine", and think about what could have been...and I promise to keep an eye out on what these lads are up to next...
Oh so close to a complete list for the DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , but that's alright...there is over 80 minutes of indie awesomeness available for you right now....not to mention...in case you somehow missed it, here is last months DSD Playlist - Feb 17
Plus, if you're interested, there is also an Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016, where I put together my favourite tracks from last year.
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
