Bird on the Wire may refer to the famous song by Leonard Cohen, recorded in 1968. It may also refer to the 1990 film starring Mel Gibson. Now, Bird on the Wire refers to a band from Amsterdam involving of Rosa Ronsdorf. Nina de Jong (Drums, Xylophone, Marimba), Sven Hamerpagt (Guitar, Bass and Autoharp) and Aino Vehmasto (keys, vocals).
Bird on the Wire writes songs about men with beards and creatures covered in flags. You could describe their sound as dream pop, although they have some darker sides, too.
Bird on the Wire played shows in the Netherlands, Germany and France, doing support shows for Tennis (US), St. Vincent (US), Thus:Owls (SE) and Braids (CA).
In the summer of 2013 Bird on the Wire was working from New York, mixing their album and performing showcases at various venues around town. At the moment they are finishing up their album, which could be a lot more then just another pop-album. Collaborations with visual artists from over seas are in the make.
