Wildbirds & Peacedrums - The Snake


Incredible singing, amazing drumming and inventive songs. I've never heard anything like this before. Some of the best music I've heard all year.

"Wildbirds & Peacedrums are a contemporary experimental two piece hailing from Sweden consisting of singer Mariam Wallentin and her husband, drummer Andreas Werliin. Their ‘instruments’ consist of her powerful vocals and his unorthodox percussion/drumming, resulting in a powerful, innovative sound. Their music is a hybrid of folk, blues and various other types of music."-lastfm
