Wildbirds & Peacedrums: New album and tour dates
Published 30 January 2009 by BWL

We are delighted to be able to announce the release of Wildbirds & Peacedrums' extraordinary second album, The Snake, on April 13. The follow up to Heartcore was recorded at the Soundtrack Of Our Lives-owned Svenska Grammofonstudion in their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. In addition to Andreas Werliin's invigorating percussion and Mariam Wallentin's mesmerising vocals, their sound is further enhanced with a range of instruments, including steel drum, piano, marimba and xylophones.

“This record is not the typical second album. You know – filled with a lot of doubts,” explains Mariam. “We only work from intuition, on instinct. We’re not looking for perfection in music, rather for life and feeling. We like to be more explosive!”

The album will be preceded by download single 'There Is No Light', which can be heard on the band's myspace page along with album track 'My Heart'.

Here is the video for 'There Is No Light', directed by Andreas Nilsson.

The album will be available on Leaf in the UK and Ireland, Australia, Benelux, France and Italy (Haldern Pop Recordings will be releasing The Snake in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and it will available through Swedish label Caprice elsewhere).

Wildbirds & Peacedrums are currently in North America, touring with compatriot Lykke Li. The Swedish duo play a handful of low-key shows in Europe in late Feb/early Mar and then return to the States for SXSW. A full European tour will commence in April - more details to follow.
