Since our private video shoot with the band at Fort Useless last month, we’ve been obsessed with everything Wildbirds and Peacedrums. Fortunately there’s a new release on the way for us to obsess over. Check out the fresh track and the word on the new Wilbirds EP which comes out in May via The Leaf Label.

Artist: Wildbirds and Peacedrums
Song: Fight For Me


Retina by Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Formats: Limited Edition White Vinyl EP (DOCK 55)
Release Date: 10 May 2010

Sweden’s Wildbirds & Peacedrums return in May 2010 with Retina, the first of a pair of stunning vinyl-only EPs. Its companion, Iris, will be made available in early June. Each will be individually numbered, limited-edition white vinyl 12”s. The two EPs will then be compiled as an album, entitled Rivers, to be released as a double CD and download in August.

Retina comprises five extraordinary new songs, stratospheric in scale and emotional scope, thematically linked by the idea of water as a reflection of emotions. The songs were recorded in Iceland in just three days by Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin and the 12-strong Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir (who also featured on Björk’s Medulla album). The EP features a stellar cast drawn from the Bedroom Community group, recorded by Australian émigré sound artist and engineer Ben Frost, mixed by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Camille, CocoRosie, Bonnie Prince Billy, etc) and with choral arrangements by Hildur Guðnadóttir (who has collaborated with Fever Ray and Throbbing Gristle, and is a member of Múm).
