Two Wounded Birds are back with the news that their self-titled debut album will be released on June 11 through Holiday Recordings which is owned by Jacob Graham of The Drums.
Following their recent tour with Glasvegas and their appearances at Camden Crawl and Live at Leeds, Two Wounded Birds are planning to continue touring and playing festival shows throughout the summer.
After releasing what became critically acclaimed singles and EPs, the band have won their fans over and landed themselves the chance to play with the likes of Grouplove, The Black Lips and The Drums.
Two Wounded Birds
Jacob Graham describes what Two Wounded Birds and their self-titled debut are all about: “…a palpable emotion proving that the rebel does have a heart after all and perhaps feels even more deeply than the rest of us.
“It’s easy to see why these rising stars caught the ears of such legends as Brian Wilson and Debbie Harry. Their songs capture the American spirit with clear allegiances to the Beach Boys, the Ramones and Elvis—all while still acknowledging the band’s British roots. You won’t hear any Elton John-style American accents here; instead, Johnny Danger’s sound recalls the velvety tones of Colin Blunstone in his Zombies heyday—a voice with true character.
“In an age in which the shroud of “pop” can describe any poorly constructed jingle that comes along, it’s nice to see the dust settle and discover the genuine article…. Here you will find proof that sincere pop songs are truly timeless.”
You can listen to album tracks To Be Young here and The Outer World here. Two Wounded Birds will be released on June 11.
