Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release from the Liverpudlian Indie quartet. Bird don't really concern themselves with making songs - they prefer to create ominous soundscapes, rolling valleys of dissonant bass folding into frothy pools of echo-laden guitars. at first glance, everything appears quite soft, floating this way and that, building gently but never quite erupting. This is but a trap. This false sense of security is completely set up, coaxed on by distant swathes of tribal drumming. The vocals initially drop into first track 'Ghost' with an almost nonchalant tone, seeming to interweave within the music rather than sit atop. It's not long before front woman Adele Emmas pounces into a higher register though, and that is where her power lies. What at first sounded quite relaxed now comes across distinctly authoritative, siren shrieks piercing straight through the layers of instrumentation. It's a style that comes further into the fore as the record goes on - a tactic seemingly honed chronologically throughout the tracklist.
