The Bird And The Bee

60's inspired, eccentric, wistful romanticism from L.A

“People in the UK are a bit more excited about us, I don’t know, maybe it’s because we’re American.” This is the kind of endearing, and refreshingly honest endeavor that serves The Bird And The Bee well. The band, alias Greg Kurstin and Inara George, relinquish all complexities in favour of untold simplicity in their sonic approach. From Sacremento, on their way to the next date supporting Lily Allen, singer Inara takes a moment to reflect on their dynamic. “We sit at the piano and Greg will play chords and I’ll sing a melody. Sometimes the chords direct the melody and sometimes the melody directs the chords. I think we kinda just like to please ourselves. Whatever concepts are interesting to us at the time, anything goes. As long as we like it, that’s our rule...
