The Welcome Return of the Wind-Up Birds

Wecome Return of the Wind-Up Birds.

We became instant fans of the Wind-Up Birds after hearing the brilliant There Won’t Always Be An England from their Tyre Fire 7″.

They are a peculiarly British band steeped in the idiosyncrasies and (sometime ridiculous) ways and mentalities of our island, unafraid to gleefully reveal when the Emperor is out and about with his new clothes, and to champion the cause of the forgotten, the unwanted and the isolated. They skilfully blend influences from folk to punk to create a restless, hybrid sound that has feet in many camps, but a home in none.

So it was good to hear that their new single Cross Country is now available to download from their Bandcamp page on a pay what you want deal. There are also two new b-sides and if you download the whole lot you get their home made video for Cross Country too.

Even better, on 14th May they release their debut album The Land on Sturdy Records.
