Previously featured on here a while back, this is the new video from Two Wounded Birds. Short and sweet.
Two different gigs in two different parts of London tonight. First band. These guys are causing a crazy stir right now. Previously featured on here a little while ago, Two Wounded Birds played Rough Trade East (the iconic record shop in London’s Shoreditch). They rocked good. Their raw take on that surf sound made you feel nice and jumpy inside.
The singer reminds me of someone I used to work with who was a bit quiet and dorky but ridiculously cool. As it happens, where I stood tonight, as I stared at the music on the shelves, staring right back at me was said ex-colleague’s band’s debut single (only available in cassette format, obvs). Anyway. You must see Two Wounded Birds live if you can.
Now off to Kings Cross to see Ollie Wride…
This is a very cool band, with a surf/pop/rock sound. Formed in the late, sultry Summer of 2008, Two Wounded Birds are kids by the sea, making music inspired from the haze of their childhood. Long drives with Beach Boys compilations in the tape decks. Dad dropping Chess Records and Link Wray on the record deck of a Sunday morning. Afternoon showings of Grease on TV. Check out here.
