Rough Trade Records are excited to announce the release of ‘The Birds’ EP as a very limited edition 12” - 650 copies worldwide, to co-incide with them supporting Richard Thompson on his sold out UK Tour this October. A very limited quantity of the EP on CD is available for sale here otherwise only available on the band’s merch table!

‘The Birds’ is a suite of six songs that explore the themes of migration and departure. These are songs of autumn and shorter days, of flying south and the first feelings of early winter. It is deliberately dark and melancholic and ever so slightly sinister in places. In contrast to the full band-sound so exquisitely captured on their 2016 album ‘Overnight’, Josienne and Ben chose to record in a minimalist way using only instruments that they could play in Ben’s basement home studio. It also allowed Ben the opportunity to experiment with Moog and drum machine rendering the songs with a subtle electronic texture.

Release Date: 13th October
