Bird World 

Shoegaze from the basement

At press time, Bird World’s future is uncertain---though the band just released a new EP, it’s embarking on a temporary hiatus. Seamus Dalton began writing songs for the shoegazey four-piece two years ago, while living in St. John’s for school. He got together with friends Kathleen Prinsen, Scott Grundy (Quaker Parents, Gamma Gamma Rays) and Tri Le back in Halifax. Dalton describes Bird World’s sound as “kind of weird, I try to rip off My Bloody Valentine.” The band has released two fuzzed-out tapes, both four-song EPs, in under a year of playing locally, the first, No Wonder, recorded on Hot Money Records with Mike Wright, the second at home. The band played the Pop Explosion in October, just a couple months after its first show, and “a bunch of basements,” which seem perfectly suited to the heavy, sludgy sound---here’s hoping Bird World sticks around for more.
