Old House by Birthday Girl

Stockholm has really delivered a brilliant alt-rock band, Birthday Girl. This tune starts with a lull but builds into a melodic rollercoaster that drives hard to the end. I love the jangle in the guitar and the complementary ambiance the reverb creates throughout the track.

Getting some love from Iggy Pop, Birthday Girl is poised for a big break, and with tunes, as driving and energetic as this, it’s no wonder.

“We wrote the tune-up a mountain in the Pyrenees, there was no one else for miles except a German lady who had a sheep farm, a real German Shepherd. We invited her over and played the tune to her, I don’t think she liked it. It’s a fitting song in these times of isolation and desperation, about being stuck in a house and creating your own fairytale to kill the days.”
