Slack Bird is a drony punk folk band from Jyväskylä, Central Finland. Frequently touring around the world, Slack Bird has released three 7″ records, two tapes, the debut album “Let’s Start Wearing Capes”, and now the latest and the darkest release yet “Aleta Au”. As an active touring band Slack Bird has performed in 15 countries around Europe as well as the East Coast of US. Slack Bird’s music is a take on Appalachian banjo, Finnish traditional music, and punk songs sung in both Finnish and English bound together by dark drone of the button accordion.
“Slack Bird create something here apologetically unique that is very approachable. Music like this becomes a shining light in a sea of imitation. To the Trad Folkies and Crust Punks alike, Slack Bird manage to straddle seemingly distant genres effortlessly and with aplomb.”
IF YOU HAD A SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Drone so huge and powerful that it would rule all the four elements and explode the heads of all the bigots. We could also fly real high.
