The Australian alt-folk quartet Summon The Birds release the LP Blood Love later in the year.
Drawing influences from across a disparate range of influences they deliver music that always offers different refraction. Having been around for some little while they have gained composure over the years allowing them to expand on the derivations of individual songs. Blood Love, which is the follow-up to their 2012 LP 48, based on what I have heard, is of different countenance with more sarcastic commentary delivering deeper texturing and layering of music, though still distinctly steeped in folk .
The first song to surface, which will be released as a stand alone single (available on bandcamp) tomorrow, follows on from the refrain of the last single Diggers (2013) with a splosh from newwave – though in this occasion rather than hinting of Quite Unnerving, one finds oneself thinking more of the sardonic humour of Splodgenessabounds.
