FUNERAL FOR BIRD
A South London project exploring indie folk, with elements of electronic music and other genres.
Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Ugandan singer-songwriter and guitarist Daudi Matsiko carefully crafts modern albeit reverent folk. Deft, melancholic picking reminiscent of Nick Drake is tempered by contemporary percussion and instrumentation, and Matsiko’s vocals derive their strength from their seeming fragility, a warble in notes that may or may not be intentional. With every song, his confessional lyrics cut to the marrow. After releasing two independent EPs, A Brief Introduction to Failure and The Lingering Effects of Disconnection, he signed to Naim Records and has toured with GoGo Penguin, Keaton Henson and Portico Quartet.
French singer-songwriter Mathilde Bataillé's music is intimate and beguiling, combining meandering guitar with heartfelt vocals and homespun electronics. Taking cues from the likes of Jeff Buckley, Patti Smith and the French chanson, her live shows resonate with introspection and a grander emotional catharsis.
