Check out the new ‘Bird to Beast’ album sampler

A week or two ago I wrote about, Bird to Beast, a new folk duo (and married couple) from Colne in Lancashire. The pair recently signed an album deal with new Manchester indie MUK Records and two weeks ago released their debut EP, the beautiful, accordian-led, To Lips From Lungs.

They’re currently gearing up for two London dates this coming week (find out more here) and the release of their debut album on the 14th October.

If your looking for vague sound-a-likes it’s a bit tricky, but their sound ushers in echoes of artists like The Beach Boys, Kate Bush and The Beatles, contemporary singer-songwriters like Rufus Wainwright, Andrew Bird and James Mercer and there’s a delightful whiff of French pop too.

In anticipation of the release of their first album, the duo have uploaded an album sampler onto Soundcloud, containing six cuts from the forthcoming album – check it out below and see if you end up loving them as much as I do:
