The Birthday of the World’ is the follow up to last year’s Cutting Up The Present Leaks Out The Future’, described by Q Magazine as a thrilling long dark night of the soul. From lo-fi bedroom pop cassettes, to post-punk shards and poetry, short films, girl-boy rock 'n' roll, and drug fueled dark folk tinged psychedelia they have constantly evolved with each release. The atmospherics, lyrical heart, and energy are carried through to this new album: a science fiction themed art-pop odyssey titled The Birthday of the World’. Inspired by the stories of Isaac Asimov, Ursula K Le Guin, and Arthur C Clarke, the new album is an exploration of Earth’s last days and the colonization of Mars and is without doubt their finest collection of songs to date.
