School of Seven Bells Remixes RAILBIRD on Consequence of Sound
Brooklyn-based experimental psych-rock band RAILBIRD is excited to premiere a new School of Seven Bells remix of their recent single "MIRRORs" today on Consequence of Sound. To RAILBIRD, the remix is "A journey in three movements. Benjamin [of SVIIB] established his own dreamy world within the song, then dropped it while simultaneously playing with mood and meaning throughout." Consequence agrees, stating the Benjamin's methodically slowed down version of the original jittery cut creates a "dreamy pool of contemplative reverberation and airy synth." Check out the premiere of "MIRRORs" (the original cut) on MTV Hive.
RAILBIRD released their newest Lucky EP in late November, a tour de force that includes two new previously unreleased songs, as well as "Jump Ship," a track that made waves this summer after a residency at Pete's Candy Store. The video for the song, which features guest vocals from Anti recording artist Sean Rowe and Phantogram's Sarah Barthel, premiered on Brooklyn Vegan in late August. Watch it here, or download "Jump Ship" here. A limited edition run of physical copies of Lucky will be available at shows and online (here) as part of a bundle that includes a t-shirt with Jisoon Park's original design.
RAILBIRD is a cast of stunningly talented multi-instrumentalists fronted by Sarah K. Pedinotti. SKP's vocal delivery has earned her apt comparisons to musical luminaries Bjork and Kate Bush, and the band's unique blend of experimental psych-pop has found a home with fans of Braids, The Dirty Projectors, and Massive Attack.
After self-releasing their debut album No One in March 2011, RAILBIRD was invited to perform at SXSW, CMJ, and the 4th Annual Roots Picnic alongside Ariel Pink, Little Dragon, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and more. RAILBIRD recently performed at POP Montreal and CMJ 2012 and have just wrapped up a small east coast tour. They will head into the studio again in January.
