New Album “Afterimage” Out Now!
Tour Kick Off Show: Friday June 23 @THE CAPRI, MARFA TX
Bitter Birds “lures the senses in with a brooding, slightly more experimental side of indie pop, which some fans have compared to early Cure – less poppy and more deliciously bleak.” – Laurie Gallardo, Austin Music Minute KUTX 98.9
Bitter Birds’ dark vibes have earned them the mantle of ‘dark pop royalty’ in their home town of Austin, TX. Guitarist/vocalist Singer Mayberry and her drummer/vocalist husband David Lujan crank out black-hewn indie-pop. Foreboding basslines, played through a customized Wurlitzer, while Lujan simultaneously plays drums, serve as the fulcrum for their songs, providing an effective emotive counterweight to Mayberry’s resolute high-end vocals. Sparsely deployed guitar and drums finish out the duo’s tasteful arrangements.
