Funeral For Bird are a band from South East London, whose new track “Set Fast” is a stirring folk work that evolves from mellow vocal duet into an invigorating really feel aided by brass lingering and swelling anthemic grandiosity. Aesthetically, there’s a fond likeness to the group Timber Timbre. “Set Fast” is the lead single and opening track off Funeral For Bird’s forthcoming EP. Its emotional energy and structural improvement show a group with robust songwriting and aesthetic skills.
Per the band:
The song explores a delicate balance among helplessness and hope, isolation and intimacy – wanting to aid an individual you really like, but not getting confident how. A slow burner, the song unfurls from an intimately raw opening verse, developing to a climactic ending chorus that raises the hairs on the back of your neck, and stops you in your tracks.
