Magnificent Birds of Prey

“Philadelphia based 4 piece band Magnificent Birds of Prey deliver a hot to the touch eclectic style EP borrowing from Alternative Rock, Punk Rock and retro Psychedelic Punk - all combined with a buzzed out indie-alt/rock aesthetic. Their lyrics share a reckelss self-depreciating sensibility. They write of the mundane and the complex, admit to what they don’t understand and question what they already know. This latest self titled EP work was released in April 2013 and consists of 8 compelling tracks. Track 1 “Anthem” sets the stage well for a consistent and jaw dropping musical journey. Expect soul-stirring harmonies and at times hypnotic rocked out psychedelic style instrumentation laced with rock solid vocal harmonies and interesting lyrical content. Straight away it’s clear to me these 8 tracks are an imaginative return to humour-laced song writing fused with the better musical touches of today Alternative Rock, all with the eccentricity of vintage punk.”- Clay Burton - Indie Shark [+]
