“It’s about coming to the realization that you’re responsible for your own happiness. It’s a song about getting out of your head, and getting out of your own way,” says Dani Green of Birdtalker, up-and-coming purveyors of anthemic folk pop, of brand new single, “Graveclothes”. The track is from their forthcoming EP, Just This, due out August 19th, and follows the band’s mind-blowing debut single, “Heavy,” which was unleashed on June 24th and has already amassed over 500,ooo streams on Spotify.
Birdtalker began with newlyweds Zack and Dani Green, and with the addition of Andy Hubright (percussion), Brian Seligman (guitar, mandolin, vocals), and Jesse Baker (bass,vocals), quickly grew into a five-piece of tightly-bound friends. In its brief time performing together, Birdtalker has had notable appearances opening for The Strumbellas and Escondido, and recently announced a show to celebrate the release of Just This at The High Watt in Nashville on September 1st, with Great Peacock and an unannounced special guest providing opening support.
“Graveclothes” is a festival-ready rollicking strummer; Zack Green’s otherworldly tenor, perfectly suited for the genre, demands your attention from the first note, as Dani’s bright and tender harmonies deftly dance with his vocals. Flirty mandolin flourishes and organ sizzles add spice to the pop.
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents “Graveclothes” by Birdtalker. This song is the business, y’all. Give it a spin:
