silverbird
 
Silverbird is the brainchild of NYC musician Tim Barr, whose musical biography reads like a not-so-subtle hint at next-big-thingism: he played with Lana Del Rey back when she was Lizzy Grant; he’s opened for Portland’s wordiest lovesmiths the Blow, and has even studied and played with protégés of Dizzy Gillespie. A few listens to Hollow Heart further solidifies our suspicions that it’s only a matter of time before Silverbird buzzes its way to the top. The track is warm and billowing, moving unexpectedly as guitars surge and keys mellow out around Barr’s crisp and unintimidating croon. The band’s upcoming EP, Surface Life, drops May 27. Until then, listen to Hollow Heart below.
