Track Of The Day: Tweak Bird
No strangers to this website, Tweak Bird are back, offering us another Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day.
The band, who gave away The Sun (Ahh, Ahh) a few months ago, are about to release their debut album. Self-titled, it’s out on August 30, through Souterrain Transmissions.
“I’m pretty excited about the positivity and heaviness of it,” says Tweak Bird’s drummer Ashton Bird, “Because we’re happy and we’re playing heavy music. And it doesn’t seem like people are doing that very much.”
Bird and his brother Caleb (guitar) make up the Illinois band, although they do occasionally expand things to a trio.
Says Caleb of one surprising influence on the band: “I was listening to a lot of T Rex. I love Marc Bolan’s songwriting technique- pretty much a guitar groove with weird little ditties on top. Pop music at its purest”.
Right now you can download the song Lights In Lines for free here.
