Mountain Bird a dream-pop band from Stockholm, Sweden have recently being signed to Universal Music Group. I featured them before when they were self-releasing material. They are about to release their new single called The Visitor. The track is written, arranged and produced by their lead man, Adam Öhman, and is performed by his band mates: Anders Erlandsson Öberg, Victor Jonsson, Dennis Fyhr and Sam Ekberg.
The Visitor combines atmospheric ambience with post-rock introspection. Resembling the Cold War Kids, the minimalism of The xx and the grandeur of M83 , with a splash of the orchestration of Sigur Ros all mixed into one, Mountain Bird know how to deliver an epic sound.
The Visitor is the lead single taken out of the upcoming new EP called Cosmos II.
Cosmos II EP consists of 5 tracks which are a direct representation of Mountain Bird’s quasi-autobiographical songwriting.
The Visitor will be available for sale and download everywhere on 23rd May, with the Cosmos II EP to be dropped shortly after on the 11th June via Universal Music Group.
Here’s a taster…..
