Lovers of the Black Bird

Lovers of the Black Bird are an intimate duo whose music is laden in beautiful drone and palpitating rhythms, presenting a naturalist’s view of life and death in cinematic scope. Together, musicians Julie Montan and Joseph Foley combine avant-glockenspiel, orchestral guitar and rapturous vocals reminiscent of Celtic folk and the sound of San Francisco’s ‘summer of love’ in the late 1960s. Their recent album, Ocean of No Time, is wrapped in drone, thick with arresting time signatures and blending, with great sensitivity, elements of doom and beauty.
