At 18 years old morgen has proven time and time again just how talented she is as a songwriter. Receiving praise from the likes of Elton John and Zane Lowe, the young musician has become a hotly discussed rising artist. Her loyal fanbase have gone berserk for her innate ability to wrap up her own adolescent experience in a flurry of youth defining melodies, relatable lyrics with a bluntly honest undertone, and a candid stying that’s hypnotic to behold. She’s covered a myriad of subjects, from yearning for the 2D world during lockdown to having the freedom to wear whatever you want without fear of judgement, and today she’s dissecting something we’ve all struggled with at one point or another. Figuring out how to break up with someone.
With a soundscape that’s reminiscent of what the 80’s would sound like when looked at through a modern lens, Hammock is as relatable as pop can be. We become a fly on the wall as we see her story unfold through her conversational lyrics, like she’s asking us for help and explaining how badly she broke up with this person. Every detail we see and begin noticing her confusion, the cogs in her brain whirling as she tries to figure out what to say next, and the indefinite end that lead us to this moment. Morgen’s voice contains an earnest quality that charms you with sweet naivety as we offer our sympathy because we all know the pain of a first break up.
