A Cluster 1 Premiere!
For certain songs, the simplest ideas work best. Bird of Youth recently spent a day at Seaside Lounge studios, recording acoustic versions of their songs. They brought a camera crew along as well. The end product is their video for “The Sound Of One Name Dropping,” a gentle, acoustic number that lets the harmonies between Beth Wawerna and Clinton Newman shine. Recorded in one take, this performance is worth both a watch and a listen.
Bird of Youth’s debut album, Defender, will drop on May 24th. It was produced by Will Sheff of Okkervil River and Phil Palazzolo (The New Pornographers, Ted Leo, Neko Case). It will also feature a number of guest musicians from The Wrens, Nada Surf, The National, Okkervil River and The Mendoza Line.
