New Music: Blackbird and the Storm


Blackbird and the Storm is actually multi field artist Marie-Juliette Bird, and the name she’s chosen seems to match the theme of forthcoming album ‘Songs for a Drowning World’: a meditation on the relationships between humans, in all their multi-faceted ways, and nature.

The melodies have been inspired by birdsong, and plenty of natural sounds have been recorded, and this all begs the question: what does it sound like? We’ve only heard one song, ‘Broken Wings’, and the answer is a sort of acoustic Polly Scattergood if you took away the piano and just used natural noises, halfway between a lament and a summer’s musings. Broken Wings is coming out April 8th.
