Hailing from the Armagh and Tyrone counties of Northern Ireland, Emo-Indie outfit BIRCHES have returned to the fold and are ready to show the world exactly what they are made of, starting with infectious new single and video ‘Be Unknown’.
Recorded at ‘Start Together Studios’ in Belfast, ‘Be Unknown’ represents a noticeable step up in sound quality whilst remaining true to that passionate, edgy DIY sound that gives BIRCHES such heart and soul. With nods to Orla Gartland or early Foals, ‘Be Unknown’ embodies the polished feel of a Girl in Red or a Phoebe Bridgers track yet still stands as its own unique entity.
BIRCHES are fun, charismatic and incredibly likeable, embedding that infectious personality into every second of their music. A band untainted by the all too often doom and gloom outlook of the industry, BIRCHES have a refreshing energy and enthusiasm. They laugh, make faces and perhaps most importantly, they have fun together as friends making music which can clearly be felt each and every time they play. There’s no doubt BIRCHES will not only have you shaking a leg with a smile on your face but they’ll also have you remembering exactly why you love music in the first place.
With a plethora of events, gigs and plans in the pipeline, the future looks incredibly bright for this hungry young group of pals and the stage is set for BIRCHES to become the band they were simply born to be.
“…it feels like everything before was all a prequel and Everything to come is the beginning of chapter one of our story. ‘BE UNKNOWN’ story is of just getting up and doing it, whether that’s calling a loved one, starting a new project or even just getting out of bed in the morning. All those things can be tough for someone and we hope this song can give the inspiration to do so.” - BIRCHES
