Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker share their six track EP, The Birds, out now both digitally and as a very limited edition 12”. Josienne and Ben will play their debut Australian shows this coming March as a part of Port Fairy Folk Festival. Further detials below!
The Birds is a suite of six songs that explore the themes of migration and departure. These are songs of autumn and shorter days, of flying south and the first feelings of early winter. It is deliberately dark and melancholic and ever so slightly sinister in places.
Josienne and Ben chose to record in a minimalist way using only instruments that they could play in Ben’s basement home studio. It also allowed Ben the opportunity to experiment with Moog and drum machine rendering the songs with a subtle electronic texture.
