Morph are almost a small riot. Seven guys making a lot of noise for most of the time and for the last half dozen years or so the band have been working hard- writing, recording and performing their unique,(ok,ok,…and eclectic), style of music. Morph was born at the start of the nineties out of a need for brothers Richard and Stephen to pen their own compositions, especially after Nirvana and Pearl Jam had then just unleashed their type of musical pain. Guitars were back in vogue then, guitars have never been out, but as the line up changed so did the direction of the music and other influences seeped in eventually shifting the Morph sound towards a funkier and more thoughtful groove. There are literally hundreds of influences among seven blokes, everything is represented- blues, jazz, rock, rap and hip-hop, Motown, dance. The only missing style is Country and the boys are happy enough with that. If pushed they would cite The Beatles,(the only band, besides Air, that all seven of them can sit down and listen to together), Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Prince, The Smiths, Radiohead and the other head…Portis…, De La Soul, Stevie Wonder and the list goes surely and steadily on and on and on. From their cosy two room studio,(with working toilet and kitchen), located in the country, Morph have been recording quite listenable demo's. The first five have found their way onto the Peoplesound.com site which has done wonders for the seven piece. Morph have always kept the gigging end of things up by playing in Dublin and nearly every venue big enough,(and not many were!), in and around Belfast. They soon take this a stage further by looking at Glasgow, Manchester and London. With their knack of being able to experiment with sounds and styles, the whole Morph direction is blossoming and maturing and with every day bringing an education and a lesson, the band are willing to learn. Should make them a musical force to be reckoned with. Some day.
