Bird #6 - The Rain Song

Facebook / birdofficial.tumblr.com

Bird are another of those bands who I've been excited about for a few years now, with a couple of stunning EP's already under their belt 2014 is already shaping up to be the year they finally break out with the release of their debut full-length My Fear And Me scheduled for May. First though comes the single "The Rain Song" on Feb 24th.

The track is of course a stunner, the (now) Liverpool quartet have yet to produce anything but. Starting with swarming, atmospheric percussion and ringing bass-lines you can instantly feel the progression of the band, Adele's haunting, ethereal tones keep the eerie, spiritual side of the band front and centre but Bird 2014 is an altogether bigger force (and more akin to the dynamic live show) with the addition of permanent guitarist Christian Sandford and soon enough "The Rain Song" explodes amongst tribal drum beats and searing guitar textures, a break of deliciously dark and beautiful harmonies only hastens the emotional outpouring of the final aural storm. Immense.

Tour dates are promised soon enough, add the album to your 'to buy list' now.
