Interview: Birds Vs Planes
Share This Article:
Birds Vs Planes are a band on the up. The Carlisle five-piece’s angular indie rock has slowly been gathering supporters, setting the band on an upwards trajectory that is set to see them shake off their underground status and loudly announce themselves to the world. Ahead of a busy winter for the band, TNS speaks to vocalist Jenny Jones to get the lowdown on their big plans. Stylistically, Birds Vs Planes can be hard to pin down with their varied sound. Jones emphasises this, stating: ‘Our music has quite an eclectic sound; it can go from very optimistic to quite dark fairly quickly’. In part, this is due to the band’s individual tastes: ‘we’ve got a very different taste in music individually, which comes out a lot in our music’ What is consistent in their songs, however, is the bands song writing ability, showing a maturity that isn’t necessarily obvious upon a first listen. Throughout the band’s material, the vocals have a strong understanding, with the juxtaposition between the two often providing many a hook filled chorus. Jones agrees, adding: ‘there shouldn’t be an argument between the two lead sounds, and we try not to make our music to congested. We think it’s important to not have too many things going on at once’ Nowhere is the bands skilful craft more obvious than in their upcoming single ‘Relative Worth’. Here the back and forth relationship between the vocals and lead guitar provide a toe tapping treat of angular rock at it’s finest. The frantic, urgent guitars contrast perfectly with Jones’ voice during verses, shifting to complement the vocals in the melodic chorus. Birds Vs Planes - Relative Worth by Music Bakery
