DISGUISED AS BIRDS
ROCK - Alternative
Disguised as Birds was born in 2004 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although Disguised as Birds' power indie rock sound tends to have a lot of dreamy, shimmering, jammy qualities, it regularly returns to explosively heavy rock bombast that puts their overall approach on grounds close to those of Shiner, Regulator Watts, Jawbox, Shipping News, Juno, etc. Still, despite the artsy leanings, Disguised as Birds unquestionably has the vibe of a classic rock band. In spirit (if not in incessant riffing) they pack a great deal of SOUL into every measure of every tune.
