Blurring the lines between hardcore, punk, and related sub-genres, Birds In Row (from Laval, France) offer something of substantial weight to their listeners. Collectively carrying somber hearts and poignant souls, they navigate through melancholic seas to shape beautifully hook-laden songs unlike anything else out there today.
Personal War is the new seven-track outpouring from Birds In Row. First proper song "Torches" breaks into a sprint from the get go. Drenched in expressive guitar work, it tells the tale of life's light overcoming death's darkness. The race continues with "O Dear" and "Weary", two musically infectious songs that are lyrically entangled in the complexity of love. "Worried" then wanders into view as a beautifully melodic piece, slowing to an introspective shuffle before the chaotic "Snakes" picks up the pace. Again, all of this leads to emotional closer "Marathon", a song that serves as Birds In Row's declaration ethical and emotional compromise. Personal War is available for pre-order now from Deathwish direct before its October 30th street date.
