“She constructs an intimate space that’s instantly, indelibly compelling.”
Jealous of the Birds shares the new song ‘Plastic Skeletons’ today and announce the release of a new EP titled ‘The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep’, due out July 13 via Canvasback Music (US) and Hand in Hive (UK & Europe).
Naomi Hamilton, aka Jealous of the Birds, has been making waves in the indie music scene since her debut EP ‘Capricorn’, which she recorded while studying English and Creative Writing at Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Then following the 2016 album release ‘Parma Violets’, came a serendipitous SXSW performance that same year that ultimately led to the connection with Canvasback Music.
Hamilton says “‘Plastic Skeletons’ was written once I got back from SXSW in 2016. That was my first trip to America and I brought a journal and wrote a bunch of stuff in it. When I got home, I went through it and wrote that song in full. It’s a collection of little words and images that I picked up.”
Additionally, ‘The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep’ EP combines four updated songs from ‘Parma Violets’ mixed by Ben Baptie (Young Fathers, Daughter, Lianne La Havas, London Grammar).
Fans in the US can anticipate an announcement of upcoming tour dates later this year.
