“Small Flame” is the all new single from singer-songwriter Morning Tourist – also known as London’s alt/folk musician, Sean McKinney.
If you’re a fan or acoustic driven music, then “Small Flame” is the song for you. It’s a gentle track that provides tranquility and peace, as well as being highly entertaining. It takes the concept of a love story filled with what if’s – exploring parallel realities, dreams and decisions. If you could freeze time at the very peak of a relationship, where nothing can go wrong, and you can stay in that moment forever, would you take it? The singer digs deep into his daydreams, exploring this question, and “Small Flame” is what came out of it.
On the single, Morning Tourist explains;
“Most of the song was written in the passionate haze of a new relationship, but was ultimately completed following its ending. By the conclusion of the song, the perspective of the author has changed from one of a charmed romantic, to that of a rueful self saboteur. While this song was written with the benefit of hindsight, its competing voices are not just reflective, but illustrate the pessimistic thoughts one tries to dismiss at a time when things are actually going well and life is good”.
The track has been released ahead of his upcoming album “The Endless Eve” – which is due to be released in 2023! The album will see nine tracks which were written and composed by Sean himself – this is including all instrumentation from Acoustic & Electric Guitar, Percussion, Keys as well as vocals. The album was produced by Tom Davis, and features guest appearances from Jody Lahart (Bass), Sam Cahalin (Synth), plus electric guitars by Harvey Fenny (on the closing track “Perfect Sense”).
