Love Like Birds #2 - Sailorboy

Facebook / lovelikebirds.wordpress.com/

If you're new to Elke De Mey (better known as her recording pseudonym Love Like Birds) you are in for a real, real treat now. I fell for her back in April and if you take a listen to her new single "Sailorboy" below, you're bound to do the same...

Elke possesses a voice so delicate and haunting that it will almost instantly send shivers down your spine, a voice pure, intimate and timeless. On her debut, self titled EP she delivered a collection of vulnerable, exquist tracks, some sad, some jaunty, sung with elegant prettiness and charm. Simple arrangements and mesmerizing vocals, a potent combination highlighted on the recently released White Room Session video of "Heavy Heart", where soft guitar pluckings and backing vocals coos beautiful enough to touch the hardest of souls.

"Sailorboy" continues with Elke's atmospheric melancholia with a backing band swelling the melody with sumptuous arrangements and flourishes, simply gorgeous. A picture on the Love Like Birds facebook page hints at a CD / DVD release of both the Sailorboy single on White Room Session, definitely something to be excited about.

For now, you can get yourself acquainted with the Love Like Birds EP, now available on 10" vinyl direct from Elke at her shop. Love Like Birds support Dark Dark Dark on tour around mainland Europe this autumn. UK please...
