Great folk rock band, very refreshing to listen to indeed, and every song captures you into the portraid story from fantastic lyrics. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically superb and the music is a superb rock folk mix.
Born on separate continents in 1988, Music For Dead Birds began making music together after meeting in the summer of 2007.
Shortly after forming, we retreated from society and fabricated a hut out of the bones of extinct Irish elk on a stretch of blanket bog in an unpopulated parish in the West of Ireland. Utilising four track recorders powered by the ghosts of said elks, we recorded our debut album ‘And Then It Rained For Seven Days..’ for the Irish label Rusted Rail. We left the comfort of our isolation intermittently during this time in order to play with bands who were actually bands, such as Phosphorescent, Villagers, O’Death, Tenpastseven, The Ghostwood Project & LITE.
Growing tired of interacting with crowds and not instantly becoming internationally renowned and well-to-do artists, we took an unofficial hiatus from live shows and returned to the hut. ‘The Pope’s Sister’ was then recorded but the spirit of the ghost elks grew weak from overhead wi-fi signals and after the completion of the album they transcended to the astral plane for eternity.
Having to admit defeat and reintegrate ourselves into civilisation, we began to construct ‘Vitamins’, an album of ten songs which would be recorded in a studio. We hope that you will be bothered to listen to it despite all of the interesting things that are instantly accessible on-line.
