It’s a glorious sound they make – a splendid mix of psych rock, electronics and a doomy ambience, there are touches of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, a dash of Can, even some downbeat folksy notes.” PROG magazine BirdPen is an alternative rock/electronic/prog act formed by Dave Pen (also the singer and guitarist in Archive) and Mike Bird. Their fifth studio album, ’There’s Something Wrong With Everything’, will be released in mid-October, immediately preceded by new single ‘Oh So Happy’. Melding heavy/psychedelic guitars, rolling basslines, Krautrock drums and old school electronics to create a doom groove ambience, the duo draw inspiration from the likes of Deerhunter, Hookworms, Suuns, The Beta Band, Pink Floyd and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. BirdPen will play an extensive European tour to promote the album, starting with two UK shows : 17.10.18 LONDON The Islington 18.10.18 SOUTHAMPTON Joiners Arms BIRDPEN ‘THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH EVERYTHING’ 1 This Is Your Life 2 There’s Something Wrong With Everything 3 Eyes In The Sky 4 Easy Life 5 Star Of The Half-Time Show 6 The End Is On TV 7 Brainwash 8 Oh So Happy 9 Good News 10 Natural Rewards Families sit huddled together in front of their flatscreen TV’s peeking through their hands to see the new world leader being sworn in by a fading shadow of hope while criminals applaud.
