Brighton-based Birdeatsbaby inhabit a world far, far removed from the mundane, scuffed-Converse drear of contemporary indie rock.
Imagine Zola Jesus meets New York Tenderbury era Laura Nyro via a Tim Burton film soundtracked by Diamanda Galas and you’re close to the vampish, deathly serious, chamber-goth romp of a noise they conspire to create.
The Indie Handbook recently described the band as ‘Gothic, in the Revival sense’.
Indeed, there is a bleak beauty at the heart of this outfit.
Working with renowned producer Jason Rubal (Dresden Dolls, The Cure) on their debut album helped Birdeatsbaby to exercise and channel their dark, musical demons in a bigger, defined and confident way.
‘Incitatus’ displays all the hallmarks of a band wishing to progress their sound as evidenced by the doomy, digitally refracted re-mulch courtesy of Avon Bosco.
Birdeatsbaby are beautiful and sinister, fragile yet aggressive, light surrounded by shadow. A thrilling proposition, fabulous freakery personified.
