MOCKING DEAD BIRD WAS BORN IN 2017 BUT THE GUYS PLAYED MUSIC TOGETHER SINCE EVER. THIS NEW STORY STARTED WITH ALL THE LOST SONGS, THE SIDE BALLADS DANIEL CARRIED ALONG THROUGH THE YEARS. DIDN'T KNOW WETHER HE SHOULD PLAY THEM ALONE... FINALLY CHOSE TO CALL VERY GOOD FRIENDS FOR A BAND OF HEARTS. THEY HAD NO STRONG IDEAS OF HOW IT SHOULD SOUND. THEY JUST SHARED THESE STRANGE STORIES WHERE BODIES AND SOULS SEEM TO BE A LITTLE BROKEN, SOMETIMES WANDERING, ALWAYS STANDING.

 

  MOCKING DEAD BIRD RECORDED HIS FIRST ALBUM IN SIX DAYS IN JANUARY 2018 IN STUDIOS JUNO (YERRES, FRANCE) WITH PEDJA BABIC. ELEVEN SONGS RELEASED WITH LAUGHS, WILL AND WINE. MOSTLY FOLK-ROCK STUFF BUT IT'S ALWAYS HARD TO SAY, THE BLUES IS NEVER FAR.
