Brooklyn-based experimental psych-pop band RAILBIRD release their newest Lucky EP today, a tour de force that includes two new previously unreleased songs, as well as "Jump Ship," a track that made waves this summer after a residency at Pete's Candy Store.
MTV Hive recently premiered "MIRRORs," the second single from the EP, and wrote, "You'd be hard-pressed to predict the ending of a RAILBIRD song, but attempting that guess-work makes the experimental Brooklyn band's music more mysterious and suspenseful." The third single, "Lucky," is currently available via the exclusive EP release stream on
Impose Magazine. A limited edition run of physical copies of Lucky will be available at shows and online (here) as part of a bundle that includes a t-shirt with Jisoon Park's original design.
RAILBIRD is a cast of stunningly talented multi-instrumentalists fronted by Sarah K. Pedinotti. SKP's vocal delivery has earned her apt comparisons to musical luminaries Bjork and Kate Bush, and the band’s unique blend of experimental psych-pop has found a home with fans of Braids, The Dirty Projectors, and Massive Attack.
After self-releasing their debut album No One in March 2011, RAILBIRD was invited to perform at SXSW, CMJ, and the 4th Annual Roots Picnic alongside Ariel Pink, Little Dragon, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and more. RAILBIRD recently performed at POP Montreal and CMJ and are gearing up for an east coast tour. The full list of confirmed dates, including an EP release show at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge in Brooklyn on 12/9, are below.
