Magnetic Morning (formerly known as The Setting Suns) is an indie rock duo made up of Swervedriver singer/guitarist and solo artist Adam Franklin and Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino.[1] The two met in early 2006 in New York City when they were introduced over dinner by long term, mutual friend, Jack Rabid[2] and officially formed at the end of 2006.[3]

Magnetic Morning released their debut six-track EP as "The Setting Suns" on iTunes on 18 October 2007. Soon after, they renamed their collaboration after a 2003 song by Franklin's moniker Toshack Highway "due to an already existing entity with a name too close for comfort".[4] A five-track CD version of EP was released through DH Records on 19 April 2008.[2] Magnetic Morning followed with their first full-length album A.M. a little over a year later in January 2009.[5]
