Birdie – Reverb Deluxe

Having met while performing in St Etienne’s touring band, Debsy Wykes (from all-girl post-punk popettes Dolly Mixture) and Paul Kelly (ex-East Village) front the elegant chamber pop quartet Birdie. Comprising unreleased tracks, alternate versions and new cover versions, their third album is all poignant melodies with strong, mellotron-driven hooklines and wan female vocals.
