‘There’s Something Wrong With Everything’ : new album out 12.10.18 11/09/2018 12 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 Southampton based alt/prog rock duo BirdPen will release their new studio album, ’There’s Something Wrong With Everything’, on 12th October. Melding heavy/psychedelic guitars, rolling basslines, Krautrock drums and old school electronics, the record creates a doom groove ambience with Dave Pen’s lead vocal sitting atop. Musically, the duo draw inspiration from acts such as Deerhunter, Hookworms, Suuns, The Beta Band, Pink Floyd and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. 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. The world is crying and The End Is On TV. Outside, lost souls wander in a daze fixed on prescription drugs with Eyes In The Sky. This Is Your Life trying to escape advertising and takeaway menus and spending what you don’t have and looking perfect and trying to fit in and everyone and everything always being Oh So Happy. Escape when and how you can, get off your knees and face the sun, find your groove and create an Easy Life for yourself as the screens keep the mind bombarded with grim tales, fear and sadness. Why can’t they bring us some Good News? Don’t let the Natural Rewards we seek be diluted, fight the lies however you can because we realise and accept that there will always be Something Wrong With Everything. Never give up as you have everything to win the race, it’s beautiful with love and grace, keep moving on. Written, recorded and produced by the BirdPen duo of Mike Bird and Dave Pen, the album was mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios in London.
