Bio

Oh Ye Denver Birds have been deceptively quiet over the last six months. 2011 was spent crafting and recording a collection of songs that will be released on March 20 as their debut release Good Ivy. From ideas that span the last two years of the bands existence as well as many new, they have grown into a collection of songs that the band are very proud of. They represent a particular chapter in Oh Ye Denver Birds life, radically different from earlier homespun recordings. Despite a different recording process it has always been their hope to generate something that is generous and surprising, crafted but instinctive and they feel like they have achieved that with these songs. Renowned for their energetic and joyous live sets, Oh Ye Denver Birds have earnt the reputation of being one of Brisbane’s must-see acts. Having recently played an intimate show for La Blogotheque’s Vincent Moon as well as the likes of Toro Y Moi (USA), Akron Family (USA), Lamb (UK) and a series of packed out local and interstate shows, Oh Ye Denver Birds will spend 2012 focused on more recording and touring endeavours. Listen to ‘Sea Other’ the first song off Good Ivy at their SoundCloud. http://soundcloud.com/ohyedenverbirds/sea-other

That elctronic colage grabbed me straight away, and only got better. This slots in well with all the freak-folk, jangly summer stuff going around. Keep playing the right shows with the right bands (like you've been doing) and I could see this taking off.

I like this. If they were from Brooklyn, they'd be on a million blogs by now. I'm happy they're home for now is Unearthed. But it might not be for much longer if they keep writing songs this good.
