Wildbirds & Peacedrums are Swedish husband and wife duo Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin. Drums and vocals are the order of the day and boy do they serve them up with some style. If ‘My Heart’ doesn’t move you on some level then you’re probably already dead inside! For Fans Of: Lykke Li, Volcano!, Indian Jewelry.
Their second album ‘The Snake’, released in the UK on the Leaf label in April this year, confirmed their status as one of the most hypnotic and exciting new bands around. ‘My Heart’ is a stunning 7.39 of primal drumming and the sweet like honey voice of Mariam with what sounds like a xylophone and keys floating invitingly in the background. The song becomes practically a gospel track, resulting in one of the most uplifting numbers I’ve heard in a while. Mariam’s vocal line ‘I’m lost without your rhythm’ sums it up perfectly. Gorgeous is not too strong a word in this case.
Their live show is supposed to be something special so make sure you catch them at one of the dates below.
