The Wind-Up Birds are a UK pop-punk band, but it’s clear that the definition of pop punk varies from continent to continent. Vocal delivery is definitely a touch different, which you’ll easily notice–to me it recalls Art Brut in the way it’s very matter of fact, almost spoken word. The group’s just released their new album, The Land, and it’s full of sharp and jagged guitar licks just like the one here. If you’re a fan of bouncing punk rock, then this is going to be right up your alley!
