Two Wounded Birds have been charming their way into the hearts of critics, crowds and listeners since their 2010 EP Keep Dreaming Baby. Hailing from Margate, the British band has been busy the past couple of years, playing Glastonbury and touring with the likes of The Drums, Grouplove and the Black Lips. Now they’re back with their first self-titled full-length, released June 26 on The Drums’ synth-man Jacob Graham’s label, Holiday Friends Recording Company.
Two Wounded Birds resulted in a collection of the original pop we’ve come to know and love. With a mix of influences ranging from The Beach Boys to The Smiths to The Cure, the band remains true to their music and lyrics with a crossover between American and British roots. Theirs are songs of light, romance and darkness. Whether you’re a fan or a first-time listener, make sure to stream and download “To Be Young” below.
