Moody folk-rock four-piece Death Black Birds’ have been quietly releasing singles from their upcoming Songs From The Fire Sessions.
So far, the band has released a few songs that reflect their capacity for writing both electric garage folk and somber acoustic numbers.
The first single released from the collection, “Bluebird”, reflects the latter style, but is sonically augmented with heavily layered atmosphere and a strong vocal performance. Rather than just adding traditional Americana-tinged instrumentation to an acoustic verse-chorus-verse structure, all the components of “Bluebird” grieve in unison, from its weeping pedal steel to it’s weeping lament: “don’t let me go into the dark / achingly alone.”
