Two Wounded Birds – ‘Two Wounded Birds’

A timeless attempt at retro

Sure, we knew that Margate’s Two Wounded Birds were backed by The Drums, seeing as they’ve played umpteen gigs with them and Drums guitarist Jacob Graham runs Holiday Friends Recording Co. But with ‘Two Wounded Birds’’ taut snare snaps, joyous choruses and rinky-dinky guitar lines, the quartet’s debut album suggests they’re literally backed by The Drums doing the Grease soundtrack. The vibe is shamelessly retro, but from the Jerry Lee Lewis-isms of ‘Daddy’s Junk’ to the nasal delivery of ‘Night Patrol’, their eagerness to look into music’s past only serves to make them sound timeless.
