ANDY LOVE ALL AROUNDThink Coldplay meets Jeff Buckley and you've got Andy Zipf's debut EP, I Stole The Morning Sun. This 7 song release best demonstrates the perfect blend of indie rock and brit pop to create an astonishing debut. The lyrical beauty is best presented through tracks like "So Am I" and "Stay (With Me Now) -- containing an eerie resemblance to something that would be on The Verve's Urban Hymns. These shoe-gazer themed, guitar-drenched songs deliver to its full potential on every track. The beautiful, Ashcroft-like vocals hit you as if you were hearing singing for the first time. This is one of the most powerful debuts that has been released in a long time, and it will turn heads wherever it goes. Andy Zipf has just started his career, but he has already delivered one of the best releases of 2004.
