The Wind Up Birds Are Back
Leeds act The Wind-Up Birds have been fairly quiet since their 2016 The Right EP, but they’ve just announced a new short album titled Desire Paths. On our first listen to the new collection, we get a tune that opens with rolling drums and a sort of fuzzy pulse; the vocals enter the picture in an almost spoken-word manner. Suddenly, the band hits the chorus, bringing in a hook with the shout of “hey/ha/ho,” before quickly returning to the verse. Be sure to enjoy the darker power punch that wraps up the song. They’ll be releasing this new effort on February 19th.
