Originally started in 2015, Funeral For Bird began as a musical outlet for Singer-Songwriter and Producer Joe Futak. It has grown from the early bedroom-recorded combination of choral harmonies, folk, ambient and dream pop of early recordings towards a much more refined realisation of these styles.

This growth is clear to see throughout the release of three self-produced albums; and is highlighted by the gradual shift of Funeral For Bird’s tenure as a solo project featuring a variety of backup musicians, towards a fully settled band-lineup of Joe (Vocals, Guitar, Piano), George Davies (Vocals, Bass Guitar), Troy Cook (Drums, Percussion), Linfa Kear (Vocals, Piano) and Dasa Bulikova (Vocals, Guitar, Synthesizer) whom have brought their own experiences both through previous collaboration with Joe and from outside of Funeral For Bird.

Upon listening to their Live EP (2018) and from witnessing one of their dynamic live performances, it is clear to see how the projects sound is expanded to a much more grander and nuanced scale. Going from this, the future looks bright indeed for the quintet as they prepare for the release of a fourth collection of songs following on from a lengthy recording period which encompasses previous changes and witnesses new and exciting ones ahead.

This growth is clear to witness on their upcoming single 'Set Fast'. The song explores a delicate balance between helplessness and hope, isolation and intimacy - wanting to help someone you love, but not being sure how. A slow burner, the song unfurls from an intimately raw opening verse, building to a climactic ending chorus that raises the hairs on the back of your neck, and stops you in your tracks.

They have played to a sold out audience at Bermondsey Social Club, as well as to packed crowds at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen, the Hope and Anchor, and a headline slot at the George Tavern. The launch for their upcoming single will be taking place at south London stalwart, the Windmill Brixton on the 12th of April.

The future looks bright for Funeral For Bird, and their upcoming EP will be released in the summer of 2019 supported by shows around the country.
