Story behind the Adam Bird Podcast:
In creating music, what matters most is the engrained desire and effort to make something that resonates; music that can be felt in the pit of the stomach. And, above all, creating music that matters.
A delicate and fragile balance of influences and sounds is what defines Those Mockingbirds. It could be a distorted guitar, ambient vibes, or the combination comprised of male and female vocals. It may seem like the pieces of the puzzle are spread all over the table while in reality they’re creating a single picture that all makes sense.
Those Mockingbirds’ debut full-length album, Penny The Dreadful, was released earlier this Summer. Engineered by Howard Willing (Smashing Pumpkins, MUTEMATH) and Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady), the band planted themselves at the Wild Arctic Studios in Portsmouth, NH for the effort, committing themselves to the music, each other and the creative process.
The release of their video for “How To Rob A Bank” found the band beating the bush hard, and they ended up on my doorstep late last year. Truth be told, I was impressed, and delighted when the band’s killer video ended up in rotation at MTVu.
