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 SigurÃ°sson and Hildur GuÃ°nadÃ³ttir.
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″.
