Biography

Beguiling and mysterious, the self-titled eponymous debut album from Lady & Bird performed and recorded by French singer-songwriter Keren Ann and Bardi Johannsson of the Icelandic band Bang Gang exists in a unique universe wholly of its own creation. Subtitled "A Children's Story For Adults," the ten-song CD is certainly not aimed at the preschool set. Far from it. Lady & Bird tells the story of two curious, disembodied creatures who are stuck in the bodies of a pair of grownups. From selections like Lou Reed's "Stephanie Says" or "Suicide Is Painless" (alias "The Theme from M*A*S*H") to the eight delicately haunting original compositions you can catch a glimpse of these two peculiar innocents as their quiet melodies slip between the crack of night and day, and seep into our natural world.
