Yellowbirds = The Rest Of My Life
Wow, now this is where it comes in handy having such kick as blog sista’s such as my girl Unholy Rhythms. I’m gonna let her do the talking on this one, because if eloquence was a middle name, it would surely fit right in between Unholy and Rhythms. If you haven’t given her a follow already, DO SO.
Yellowbirds create sunny, psychedelic folk. Warm and inviting, “The Rest Of My Life” opens with a gorgeous, simple organ chord that seems to linger until it bursts - creating room for the percussion, the jangly guitar, and the hesitant vocals. It is a lot like shade on a warm day, a cool glass of ice tea, a gentle breeze that carries you away. You become so wrapped up in the warmth, you almost forget where you are. Visible and defiant.
The recently released single is available over at bandcamp.
