Friday Live: Humbird
Tickets £6 adv. / £8 OTD
"The nine tracks take myths and legends and fairytales, replanting them to see how they grow and look in the light of today’s world. Sounds with the idiosyncrasies of folk and americana music wrapped in a gentle rebellion." - Atwood Magazine
Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars. Humbird’s debut album Pharmakon is “...an absolutely hypnotic listening experience” according to Folk Alley.
"[Siri Undlin's] crystalline voice is thoroughly enchanting...an absolutely hypnotic listening experience." - Folk Alley
Months after its initial release, Humbird’s debut continues to resonate with listeners, wracking up online streams and (more importantly) connecting with listeners all over the world. Inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, John Prine and Big Thief, Humbird crafts songs of American mysticism rooted in the grit of the upper midwest.
“You can’t deny the rich experiences and young wisdom that helped find these words… both beautiful and a reminder of the part we all play in determining our fate.” - Folk Radio UK
