Brother Bird is the project of Caroline Swon. And as the vocals bring you back from the shock of such majesty, your sentient being, asserts once more to take in the breathtaking beauty of ‘What We’ve Become’.
“I’ve been working on my album for about a year with my pals, Andy Hull & Robert McDowell, from Manchester Orchestra,” said Caroline. “With the pandemic insanity, everything has been put on a slight hold— ‘What We’ve Become’ was the final addition to the record… I wrote & recorded it the same day with my friend, Tim Bruns, back in January. It’s a love song, but in a lot of ways it’s about personal growth. Becoming the person you are today. It’s a special one and I’m just thrilled to have it out in the world.”
Lovely vibes is where this song lies, and it’s a lung opening, wide expanse of revelry and charm, where we soak intentionally and comfortably. A gorgeous simplicity comes about when Caroline’s vocals met the chords of ‘What We’ve Become’.
Growth of our inferior selves – short and stout – inevitably show in the years marked, just up the road of life. Scars, pain, triumphs, and understandings, mar this sometimes desolate travel.
At least we haven one more advocate in Brother Bird.
