“This band produces brilliant pictures, words, laughs and, all of a sudden,
music I really want to hear” For Folk’s Sake
Hymns for the Careless – the fantastic debut album from Tiny Birds – splices
indie-folk sounds with classic pop songwriting. Its eight tracks are short, sweet and
relentlessly endearing, suggestive of good indie stock like Hefner, Gorky’s Zygotic
Mynci, The Wave Pictures and Port O’Brien.
Previously dubbed ‘sad songs with happy music’, Tiny Birds never so much as
set foot in a minor key, but their smatterings of ukulele and thick daubs of techicolour
banjo nestle alongside lyrics of nostalgia and regret. The album winds a lyrical course
from the beaches of Norfolk to the playgrounds of London, taking in ancient Greece and
Renaissance Venice on the way.
If you like simple pop melodies and complex folk arrangements then you’ll love
this. The cold-hearted need not apply.
"Astonishingly confident record, this. They are a near perfect 10/10 in my
book" The Waiting Room Radio Show
