An nearly unclassifiable mixture of extra, bluesy vocals and powerful drumming — with some pop and jazz components mixed set for great measure — Sweden’s Wildbirds & Peacedrums feature vocalist Mariam Wallentin and drummer Andreas Werliin. The set fulfilled in 2004 at Gothenburg’s Academy of Music and Episode but, frustrated using the institute’s rigid format, they started making music independently the following 12 months (and in addition got wedded). They released two limited-edition CD-Rs independently before documenting their full-fledged debut recording, Heartcore, in 2006; it had been released in 2007 from the Swedish label Found You. Leaf reissued the recording internationally in springtime 2008; that 12 months, the music group also toured with Lykke Li and was called that year’s Jazz in Sweden designer. Wildbirds & Peacedrums’s second recording, Snake, found its way to 2008 around the Swedish jazz label Caprice. The recording premiered in the U.S. a 12 months later on. The duo embarked to Iceland to record two EPs within weekly: Retina, that they made out of cellist and arranger Hildur Guðnadóttir as well as the Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir, and Iris, that they documented in Reykjavík’s Greenhouse studios. The EPs received limited-edition releases in-may and June of 2010; a couple of months later, these were mixed as the recording Streams. After spending a lot of 2011 touring with famous brands St. Vincent, Deerhoof, and Konono No. 1, the duo started focus on their 4th record late that season. Motivated by their active touring plan, Wallentin and Werliin stripped their music right down to its most important elements on Tempo, which found its way to November 2014.
