These bones carry stories and we reap them through song.
Girl Swallows Nightingale delivers big, ambitious sound. The Oakland-based experimental pop/rock band crafts intricate song structures buoyed by infectious funk grooves and heady harmonies. Storytelling and performance are also central to their music; the band thrives where sensory planes intersect.
Girl Swallows Nightingale's debut album, Shapeshifter, breathes life into a world of ghostly tales and memory fireflies. Imbued with gauzy soundscapes, highly technical arrangements, and a rich narrative nestled in the realm of fantasy and science fiction, each track conjures a cinematic experience. Shapeshifter will be released in conjunction with a set of short films and editorial photos, each work a window into the album's universe and the mythic characters who roam there.
Step into our world. A place of the delightfully strange.
