Last year we had 'The Drums'. Now we have 'Two Wounded Birds'.
'Two Wounded Birds' genuinely sound like a twisted sibling of 'The Drums'. I have dubbed them twisted purely because they have many faces to their sound. 'Summer Dream' is basically what it says on the tin. It sounds like a dream you would have. In the summer.
But then you hear 'Midnight Wave'. It seems to be very heavily based on the 12-bar blues, and it seems that when night comes, 'Two Wounded Birds' transform into this new, complicated, evil band. With equal amount of animation and energy, but facing the opposite direction.
So as Alex Turner of 'Arctic Monkeys' says 'Consisted of the strange, the twisted and deranged' about 'Crying Lightning'. I say it about 'Two Wounded Birds'
I really think that 'The Drums' finally have decent competition on their hands!
