UK Alt-Pop Trio Exploring Birdsong reveal new single and video “Turntail”

A beautifully curious blend of pop-sensibility, delicacy, experimentation, and heaviness. Piano-led, guitar-less trio EXPLORING BIRDSONG is paving its own musical path with their latest single “Turntail.”

“In a similar way to the latest single ‘The Collapse’, the bones of ‘Turntail’ were originally formed a while back, whilst we were still at university,” comments the band. “The first version of the song was actually written long enough ago that we were considering to be a part of our debut EP ‘The Thing With Feathers’. Where ‘Turntail’ differs from ‘The Collapse’, however, is we always knew there was a great song in there somewhere. The chorus we feel is one of the strongest we’ve ever written, and we didn’t want to force releasing a song we think may benefit from a revisit later down the line. Fortunately, we feel the wait has paid off, and the version of ‘Turntail’ you hear today is something we’re really proud of. It represents both the older parts of us, along with the fresher, future version of Birdsong, and releasing it now feels right.”

EXPLORING BIRDSONG caught the eyes of key players in the press (Prog Magazine, Kerrang!, Classic Rock Magazine) and achieved two Progressive Music Awards nominations. The young group recently joined Katatonia as a special guest for their shows in Ireland – the first live performances since their European debut at Euroblast Festival (Cologne, DE), mainstage set at RADAR Festival, and inaugural headline tour across the UK in September 2021, including London, Manchester and Birmingham.
