A beautifully curious blend of pop-sensibility, delicacy, experimentation and heaviness.
Piano led, guitar-less trio Exploring Birdsong are paving their own musical path with their
latest record Dancing in the Face of Danger. Their acclaimed 2019 debut EP The Thing With
Feathers caught the eyes of key players in the UK press (Prog magazine, Kerrang! Magazine,
Classic Rock Magazine) and achieved two Progressive Music Awards nominations in the
same year. Dancing in the Face of Danger, recorded and mixed at Northstone Studios,
Bridgend, builds on the musical foundations of The Thing With Feathers. The five track EP
has an evolutionary growth; synthesizers and a live string section add texture and gravity to
the piano led core, and whilst the record isn't conventionally conceptual, lyrically, the band
describe each track as 'having its own tale to tell'. A constant, however, is the mesmerising
voice of singer Lynsey Ward. Powerful, vulnerable, controlled, and emotionally captivating,
her vocals are at the heart of the band's ability to straddle the boundaries between
genres. Whilst the band refuse to be pigeon-holed to one genre, they evoke elements of
Agent Fresco, Kate Bush, Everything Everything, Sleep Token and Karnivool.
