The Bird and the Bee‘s new LP, Recreational Love, is an “enjoyable, entrancing, and enigmatic collection that engages from the get-go and doesn’t let go until the final crescendo.” This is according to ArtistDirect, which currently features a long, in-depth interview with the singer Inara George. In the interview, George discusses her creative process with the other half of the duo, producer Greg Kurstin, and she also shares non-musical inspirations that include her kids, Haruki Murakami, and even the Twilight series. Read it here, in a piece that also includes some Bird and the Bee video embeds.
The duo has also recently released a performance video of single “Will You Dance?” that they’ve labeled as an “Acoustic Session.” The video features George at a microphone singing the song’s lyrics, while Kurstin moves around behind her to articulate the song’s instrumental parts on a large and diverse collection of modern and vintage synths. It may not be acoustic, but it’s pared down and fun. Watch the video below.
After back-to-back weeks in the CMJ Top 10, Recreational Love has spent consecutive weeks at #11 at Radio 200. Thanks to all the stations that have supported the Bird and the Bee.
