Up-and-coming Liverpool based trio Exploring Birdsong recently signed with Long Branch Records, and now they’ve announced their debut EP, ‘The Thing With Feathers’.
Set to be released on November 29th 2019, ‘The Thing With Feathers’ is broadly speaking a concept release, centred on the Seamus Heaney poem ‘Bye Child’ and the story of Kevin Halfpenny, one of the most bizarre cases of child cruelty ever recorded. This is mirrored in the EP title and cover art with broken backbones becoming broken wings.
