Today, the members of White Birds release their debut full-length, When Women Played Drums. Born out of the ashes of Drink Up Buttercup, White Birds is James Harvey, Farzad Houshiarnejad, Mike Cammarata and Chris Radwanski. Where the music of Drink Up was quirky psychedelic pop, White Birds’ songs are lush sounding, reverbed pop tunes that bring to mind Fleet Foxes and the Beach Boys. Though the band’s gorgeous harmonies are enveloped by a Phil Spector-esque “Wall Of Sound,” the songs never get lost in the haze. The band plays Johnny Brenda’s on Tuesday, March 20th, with Pond and Oberhofer. Tickets and more information about the show are here. Last November the band recorded a Key Studio Session, which you can listen to and download here. Listen to and purchase When Women Played Drums below.
