We’re really excited to announce that The Raised By Wolves have joined the Shorebird family and are thrilled to be partnering with the band to bring their debut, “Sadie Hawkins,” to an international and wider audience this Winter! Check out the music video for their song “Freddy Freaker”, which Purevolume.com described as “hypnotizing.” The video made waves in the blogosphere and landed the group a feature on The Village Voice a mere two days after the premiere. The band has its sights set on the road this October, with their first tour around the mid-Atlantic and Northeast that includes a stop in NYC during CMJ week.
Check out their band page HERE for more information on the band!
We hope to see you out there!
SHOREBIRD to release Best Dog Award’s debut EP “Faith-Based Space Place” on CD/LP/DIGITAL this Fall!
Every once in a while a band comes along that really grabs your attention – and for we folks here at Shorebird – Best Dog Award is that band. Best Dog Award is a party of three, twenty-somethings hailing from the deserts of Tucson, Arizona. A flurry of dreamy, yet spontaneously chaotic guitar meets droning electric organ only to be topped off by delightfully stripped down rhythms to create perfectly matched tones. These guys have already shared the stage with artists such as Vampire Weekend and Youth Logoon and will be playing plenty of shows (hopefully in your town) in the near future. Check back soon for full release details, in the mean time, check out the video for “Successful” off of the upcoming EP here.
Shorebird is thrilled to welcome Building Birds to the Shorebird family. Building Birds began in Flint, Michigan, United States in early 2014 when long-time friends Ashley Peacock (vocals, guitar) and Johnny Mason (bass) began writing songs in Johnny’s living room with the intent of starting a shoegaze band. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds and experiences, and instead of forcing things, the duo let the writing take its natural course and ended up with a delicious mix of American indie and British pop with overt shoegaze influences. In the spring of 2014, Todd Gilbert was brought in to drum and Taylor VonBrockdorff fell into second guitar duties. Check out their band page here and stay tuned for updates!
