from Athens, Georgia, the locale coined as the "bohemian college town," indie rock group Futurebirds is comprised of Daniel
Womack, Carter King, Dennis Love, Thomas Johnson and Brannen Miles. It didn't take long for the group to become a favorite
among locals. The group made big waves when their eponymous EP dropped, which helped them score a record deal with Autumn
Tone Records. Their debut album, Hampton's Lullaby, arrived in 2010, followed by the EP, Via Flamina.
From the very
beginning, Futurebirds managed to balance their homegrown roots with their futuristic way of thinking. The combination resonated
with music fans almost immediately.The group's high-octane live shows and reverb-tinged country sound have made also made
them a stand-out, garnering praise from critics and fans alike.
Futurebirds have two
studio albums to their credit, which include: Hampton's Lullaby (2010) and Baba Yaga (2013).
Of their latest album,
Baba Yaga, Johnson said, "The songs on this album seem to all come from a similar place. They don't all sound the same or
have the same vibe, but we've shared so many experiences that there's an unspoken understanding among us as to where a song
is coming from and where it wants to go." He added, "Musically, we're a lot sharper now than we've ever been, and that's a
product of playing so many shows. Going into the recording of the record, we were much better musicians, songwriters and collaborators
than we'd ever been, and we feel like the end result reflects our maturity and development."
"It was a long and painstaking
process trying to get this album out. We got pretty discouraged, feeling like maybe it would never see the light of day, and
one day I was talking to Thomas and started saying, 'God, is this record some mythical creature out in the woods that only
exists in our imaginations?' Then we read about Baba Yaga, and that perfectly described how we were feeling about this record,"
Baba Yaga features enthralling tunes like "Death Awaits, "Virginia Slims," "Death Awaits" and "Serial Bowls."
EPs include: Futurebirds (2009) and Via Flamina (2011).
