Love Like Birds is the lovechild of Elke De Mey, a young musician, currently living in Gent, Belgium. The warm, dreamy voice she is blessed with gives her bedroomfolk an attractive, intimistic feeling.
For a while she has been playing as Love Like Birds for anyone who cares to listen, and with a fast growing number of fans it became time for a self-titled EP.
On this EP she enriches her dark honest, lo-fi songs with subtle arrangements, with the help of the producerduo Jinte Deprez (Balthazar) and Gertjan Van Hellemont (Douglas Firs, The Bony King of Nowhere).
It causes the songs to breath and come to life. The whole story is being whispered into your ears, as if you'd been watching a nice scenery. Often you get the impression she wants to avoid that the neighbours can eavesdrop on her personal tales.
"To Elke, the intimate bond with the listener is very important. She writes beautiful, fragile songs that linger between musical naivety and emotional intensity."
