Artist Info

Suicidal Birds

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Suicidal Birds are two girls ( Jessie: vocals, guitar / Chay: bass guitar, vocals) from the northern province Friesland, the Netherlands. The release of their debut album “Z-List” early 2005 on the Dutch independent label Transformed Dreams caused rave reviews in the Netherlands and UK. Airplay on Dutch alternative radio, BBC radio-one, xfm and on live webcast programme on dirty Radio by Rick Smith and Karl Hyde from Underworld, press- attention and extensive touring in the Netherlands and the UK ( more tours followed). The band got invited by BBC radio one programme one music ( the follow-up to the John Peel programmes) to do a studio-session for the programme at Maida Vale studio’s, which was broadcast on September 27, 2005. In February 2006 they recorded a half hour live set for the programme at Maida Vale studio's, broadcasted march 28, 2006. The song “me animal” was voted # 41 in 2005 s festive fifty on bbc radio one s one music programme.

The bands rapidly established live-reputation also led to two invitations by Dinosaur Jr. to be their support in Holland and Belgium. They played some out-door festivals and both the EuroSonic and Noorderslag-festivals in Groningen, the Netherlands, January 2006. The album was voted at number 10 in the end-year list of best albums of 2005 ( including international releases) by Dutch main alternative radio-station vpro 3 voor 12.
The Suicidal Birds did 4 UK tours so far and 1 France tour and a lot of gigs in Germany.

Their second album “Versus Life”, released on the Dutch independent label Tocado Records will be released early 2007. UK , France and Italian tours will follow short after the release of this new album.

Music: Armed with out-dated amps, ( self made) pedals, drum machine, bass guitar, guitar and the elastic strong and moving voice of singer Jessie they bring up a up raging storm, drenched in the raw passion the blues: Intense, urgent, confronting, personal, sometimes treacherously playful, exciting and inescapable. With a voice full of character, uncompromisingly distorted guitar- and vocal sounds and at times overwhelming sound-orgy, they manage to give feelings of doubt, craziness, tragedy, sex & drugs, hope and despair, believe and disbelieve a musical format deeply rooted in the blues combined with the energy of punk emphasising the rough and readiness, weirdness and wilderness that is so essential in rock and roll.
