Bird to Release EP on Jack to Phono

September 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

Bird are a six piece band, hailing from Liverpool, England. They combine haunting and poetic lyrics with melodic guitar and eerie, sweeping violin riffs. Bird put themselves under the genre of ‘atmospheric folk’ and atmospheric is definitely the word. Bird’s universe is magical and will leave you with hairs standing up on the back of your neck. Bird formed when songwriter/singer Adele Emmas advertised for musicians just over a year ago.Other band members include, Mick Dolan – guitar, Keith Thompson – multi instrumentalist, Danny Poole – bass, Alexis Samata – drums and Austin Ray – violin. The band are progressing fast, they have played Liverpool SoundCity (one of the UK’s biggest leading festivals) and had numerous magazine articles and reviews published. Bird have also had plenty of airplay by playing radio slots on BBC 6MUSIC (Tom Robinson show) BBC Radio Merseyside and Amazing Radio. They are currently gigging around the Liverpool music circuit and are set to branch out and play future gigs in London and various shows around the U.K.

Bird release their much anticipated E.P in the Autumn entitled Phantoms on 31/10/11 on Jack to Phono Records.  You can hear a remix of the track Phantoms by Tom Eno exclusive to the Jack to Phono player.
