Birds and Beasts are an alternative pop/folk duo based in West Yorkshire. Their union started in Huddersfield with a mutual love of animals and music.
Birds and Beasts write memorable songs inspired by animals and the natural world. Stuck in a log cabin during a snowstorm in Germany, with only a guitar and a bass, the idea of Birds and Beasts was born. Their songs are well researched and rooted in a love of animals but are also easy to relate to the human experience.
Their music reflects a microcosm of experiences from triumph, heartache, betrayal, loss, love, union and friendship, all told through the prism of the animal kingdom.
Recently the band have shared the stage with Romeo and Michele Stodart from The Magic Numbers, Space, Miles Hunt, Dan Sealey from Merrymaker & previously Ocean Colour Scene and Chris Helme (Seahorses) They have self penned all the songs on their first album, Entwined. Over lockdown they recorded their second album, Kozmik Disko that is out in March 2021.
Birds and Beasts are touring online via their Facebook page and LIVE streaming out to audiences.
