Brooklyn-based musical collective Railbird recently released new single “Jump Ship” just ahead of a July residency at Pete’s Candy Store. The brand new track features Sean Rowe (ANTI), whose Cohen-esque baritone is deeply soulful, and Sarah Barthel of Phantogram (Barsuk), whose breathy vocals are most often heard over booming electronic beats. Download “Jump Ship” from Brooklyn Vegan. It’s no wonder this unlikely collaboration meets in the middle with Railbird – A band accustom to divergent thinking.
Railbird, the brainchild of bandleader Sarah K. Pedinotti (SKP), is a solid cast of multi-instrumentalists whose sound crosses many genres and encompasses complex rhythms and swirling bursts of guitars and synths around Sarah’s angelic voice and truly unique style of songwriting.After self-releasing their debut album No Onein 2010, Railbird was invited to perform at SXSW, CMJ, and the 4th Annual Roots Picnic in Philly. No One, co-produced by Jeremy Gustin and SKP in Queens and upstate NY, is a conceptual album that took over one year to complete. The album is nuanced, dark, rhythmic, and haunting and draws comparisons to Bjork, Kate Bush, Grizzly Bear, and Dirty Projectors.Railbird is currently recording demos and rehearsing in a cabin at Lake George. They’ve just completed a July residency at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn, but you can catch them August 8th at Mercury Lounge opening for Heather Christian & the Arbonauts at 6:30pm.
