Bird on the Wire may refer to the famous song by Leonard Cohen, recorded in 1968. It may also refer to the 1990 film starring Mel Gibson. Now, Bird on the Wire refers to a band from Amsterdam. They have been around since 2011, transforming their sound until they were ready to release their debut album ‘Our Hands Meet on the Moon’ on Meduse MagiQ records in May 2014.
You could describe their sound as dream pop, although they have some darker sides, too. The songs can be seen as stories, all evolving from images. The melodic drums make new chapters into these stories and the dreamy, sometimes psychedelic, guitars and keys create a sound that makes Bird on the Wire a unique band. You could refer to them by their influences, from the Velvet Underground to Warpaint, still their songs are very authentic.
