Mountain Bird Release Video For Single, The Visitor

Mountain Bird are an aspiring dream-pop act hailing all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Having recently being signed to Universal Music Group, they are about to release their highly anticipated new single, The Visitor. The track is written, arranged and produced by their lead man, Adam Öhman, and is performed by his band mates: Anders Erlandsson Öberg, Victor Jonsson, Dennis Fyhr and Sam Ekberg.

The Visitor is a unique sonic experience that combines the atmospheric ambience with post-rock introspection to excellence. Resembling the creativity of Cold War Kids, the minimalistic approach of The xx and the grandeur of M83 all mixed into one, Mountain Bird know how to arrange their music impeccably from start to finish.

The Visitor is the lead single taken out of the upcoming new EP, Cosmos II. It gives way to a collection of mellifluous tracks, pulsating rhythms and insightful lyrics. The overall production positions Mountain Bird as one of the potential and non-traditional leading breakout artists of 2014. One of their most distinguishing features is unearthing the new, brave and oft-ignored sounds together with the cozy familiarity which everyone can relate to. The melodic guitar riffs are beautifully layered with the delicate nature of the lead vocals and together they create a soulful coating on top of their already haunting sound.

Cosmos II EP consists of five tracks which are a direct representation of Mountain Bird’s quasi-autobiographical songwriting. The songs do not always sound triumphant yet still feel very re-assuring with the words acting as salves for the listeners’ own hang-ups and reservations.

The Visitor is available now with the Cosmos II EP to be released on 11 June via Universal Music Group.

Introducing…Mountain Bird

Mountain Bird are an ambitious dream-pop act hailing all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Having just being signed to Universal Music Group, they are about to release their highly anticipated second single, Violent Night. The track is written, arranged and produced by their lead man, Adam Öhman, and is beautifully performed by his band consisting of Anders Erlandsson Öberg, Victor Jonsson, Dennis Fyhr and Sam Ekberg.

Violent Night is a beautiful follow-up on their debut single Don’t Mind and comfortably continues the path set by it.

The song starts with an epic intro which straight away sets a nostalgic and valiant atmosphere. Resembling Sigur Rós and M83 at their best, it is a grand sonic experience from start to finish.

Distant and ethereal production filled with atmospheric layers of guitars, pianos and synthesisers, is a signature sound of Mountain Bird. The ever so present eerie hauntology and concentrated pop splendor make Violent Night yet another successful sonic journey to the outer space and back. Despite the changes in the rhythm, every passage feels very natural and free and keeps moving bravely at its own pace.

There’s an overall cinematic and storytelling characteristic that proves Violent Night is simply worth listening and dreaming to. Violent Night will be available for sale and download on the April 6.
