Wildbirds & Peacedrums – ‘The Well’

Sweden’s Wildbirds & Peacedrums released the rather brilliant Retina EP in May on The Leaf Label featuring the standout track ‘Fight For Me’ last month. This month, the band release the Iris EP, a companion 12″. The two EPs were recorded in Iceland with a Chamber Choir and the talents of Bedroom Community’s Ben Frost, Valgeir Sigurðsson and Hildur Guðnadóttir.

The two EPs will be then compiled into an album called Rivers to and released on CD and digitally in August. ‘The Well’ showcases the Iris EP’s pre-occupation with the steel pan drum which features on all five tracks. The Iris EP is out on June 21st on numbered white vinyl 12″.
