about

BIRD & THE WAR IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL INDIE-ROCK ACT. BY ARCHITECTING A COLORFUL SONIC BLEND OF ELECTRONICA, AMBIENT, SHOE GAZE AND MORE, THEY’VE CREATED AN UNDENIABLY ORIGINAL, CINEMATIC, AND EVEN REVOLUTIONARY FORCE IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SCENE. LAYERING INNOVATIVE TEXTURES AND TONES ONTO THE FAMILIAR AESTHETICS OF BANDS LIKE BON IVER, THE NATIONAL, AND EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, B&TW OFFERS AN IMPRESSIONISTIC COMPILATION OF AUTHENTICITY, EMOTION AND QUIET AGGRESSION— MAKING THEM A UNIQUE VOICE IN THE CONTEMPORARY ALT SOUNDSCAPE.

 

HERE AND NOW

MUCH OF CALIFORNIA HAS ALREADY DISCOVERED BIRD & THE WAR, FROM THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CLUB SCENE (SAN FRANCISCO’S HOTEL UTAH), TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA'S FINEST VENUES (ANAHEIM’S HOUSE OF BLUES, THE CONSTELLATION ROOM, HOLLYWOOD’S ON THE ROX AND AVALON BARDOT, DOWNTOWN L.A.’S BODEGA CALIFAS). THEY’VE PARTNERED WITH ORANGE COUNTY PRODUCER// RECORDING ENGINEER JOSHUA P. BROOKS, ACCLAIMED SOCAL VIDEO ARTISTS LITTLE FELLA MEDIA, AND ARE CURRENTLY SIGNED WITH LOS ANGELES-BASED MUSIC PUBLISHERS RIPTIDE MUSIC GROUP.


HOWEVER, TO LABEL B&TW A CALIFORNIA BAND IS INSUFFICIENT. WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR FULL LENGTH ALBUM 'R H E T O R I C', TO THE GLOBAL POPULARITY THEY’VE FOUND ON THE INTERNET, THIS IS A BAND WHOSE REACH, LIKE THEIR SOUND, DEFIES CONVENTIONAL BOUNDARIES. MUSIC WEBSITES HAVE GIVEN EXTENSIVE NOTICE TO B&TW’S UP AND COMING SOUND, WHICH EXAMINER CALLED “MUSICAL BLOWS WITH GENTLE REPOSE, SIMULTANEOUSLY EXPOSING THEIR SOFT UNDERBELLY TO THE LISTENER.” BLACK ON THE CANVAS HAS DECLARED: “BIRD & THE WAR TAKE FLIGHT AND CLIMB ABOVE THE PACK. THIS BAND STANDS OUT WITH AN ORIGINAL SOUND THAT GRABS YOUR ATTENTION FAST AND MAKES A LASTING IMPRESSION.”


THEIR MUSICAL VISION IS HEARTBREAKING, EMOTIONAL AND ARRESTING TO THE LISTENER. DON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU HEAR BIRD & THE WAR ON LOCAL RADIO, ON YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC APP, OR ON A MOVIE SOUNDTRACK. MEET THE AMBIENT INDIE-ROCK BAND THAT’S POISED TO RECONFIGURE MODERN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC FOR YEARS TO COME.
