Sweden’s extraordinary drums and vocals duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums return with new album The Snake, the fierce follow up to their intoxicating debut, Heartcore.
Heartcore introduced vocalist Mariam Wallentin and her percussionist husband Andreas Werliin to the world outside their lively Gothenburg scene and wound up as one of 2008’s hidden treasures. The pair has since toured extensively, thriving on international festival stages.
The energy loop between Mariam and Andreas flows powerfully: “You need to dive into it to feel it,” she says. “We have always had an obsession with creating new music, but also timeless music written from basic needs.”
State is excited to see Wildbirds & Peacedrums are playing Crawdaddy on Tuesday April 28th. Tickets €13 from the usual sources.
Here’s what to expect. Enjoy.
