hmv's Next Big Thing... #201 Lady Bird
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Kent punks Lady Bird...
Who Are They?
Lady Bird are singer Don Rennols, guitarist Alex Deadman and drummer Joe Walker. Formed 18 months ago in Tunbridge Wells and have since dropped a series of excellent early singles, culminating in new EP Social Potions.
After catching the ears of cheeky twosome Slaves, the pair have now signed Lady Bird to their own label Girl Fight Records and have put out Social Potions.
What Do They Sound Like?
This is scratchy, raw and decidedly lo-fi punk. Think The Streets with Wire backing them.
Why Should I Be Excited?
The combination of the band's caustic power and Rennols' witty, conscious lyrics is a very potent one.
Can I Hear Something?
Indeed you can. Get stuck into their new release 'Boot Fillers' below...
