Video premiere: The Whybirds – The Crow’s Caw
Classic Rock is proud to premiere the first-ever video from The Whybirds – view The Crow’s Caw below.
It’s taken from the rising stars’ third studio album A Little Blood, due for release on November 4, after Classic Rock tipped the Bedford three-piece for greatness on the launch of their second record, 2010′s Cold Blue Sky.
Singer and drummer Luke Tuchscherere says: “The Crow’s Caw started life as a finger-picked folk song, kind of like Townes Van Zandt meet Tom Waits.
“It was written during a very dark time in my own life. In fact, the song became so personal, I had to make the odd adjustment to the lyric so it would read like a character song in order to distance myself from it, in case I was being too honest.
For the band arrangement, we kept the Tom Waits thing in mind, and added a little Grinderman-style Nick Cave to the mix.”
