Das neue selbstbetitelte Album von Wallis Bird ist seit heute draussen. Zur Veröffentlichung hat sie sich was ganz besonderes einfallen lassen. Ich werde es mir einfach machen und die Beschreibung auf Vimeo hier posten:
Berlin in late summer 2011 – or to be more exact, what was left of summer 2011. Philipp Kaessbohrer and his team used the last sunbeams of summertime to film Wallis Bird and her band in Berlin’s old broadcasting studio. Five songs were shot across three days inside what remains of the former GDR radio station, an impressive architectural construction whose former glory has, over the years, become gradually run-down and dilapidated. Wallis and her band – German brothers Christian and Michael, and Aoife and Aidan from Ireland – were filmed over three long days as they interacted, played and recorded together. The outcome is a 25 minute ‚Songumentary‘, connected through the songs ‚Encore‘, ‚I Am So Tired of that Line‘, ‚Heartbeating City‘, ‚In Dictum‘ and ‚Ghosts of Memories‘, all of which originate on the upcoming third record „Wallis Bird“ (released March 9th). Featuring an impromptu party; the subsequent hangover; creative frustration; some breathtaking performances; and even a wolf.
