Duffy & Bird Deliver Epic New Music ‘Faking a Smile

Indie Duo

Duffy & Bird

“Faking a Smile” from the “Spirit Level” EP

Duffy & Bird are back with a great new EP, and you know you want to hear it!

The talented duo has concocted here more of their trademarks Folk/Americana, stripped down goodness, with cool acoustic guitars and beautiful vocal harmonies. The EP is showing a great breadth of musical styles while staying true to the raw simplicity of just voices and guitars. It’s all about the song, and there are great ones on this new output.

Take this “Faking a Smile” song, with its delicate harmonics intro and 3/4 tempo, and the story of a sad waitress longing for her deceased lover, having trouble getting through the day and faking a smile, a lovely vignette full of great imagery which makes you feel for the forlorn heroin.

But it’s not all sad and delicate, as you get some rocking upbeat Americana there too, which shows the duo’s great versatility. So if you’re looking for some acoustic greatness, look no further than this new EP!

Verdict: 5/5 beards

Duffy and Bird Do It Again with Trademark Sound of Americana Goodness


Duffy and Bird EP

Duffy & Bird

“Avenue of Luck”

They did it again! Following their acclaimed first EP “5 Lines”, the dynamic UK duo is back with a new single that continues in the vein of folk/Americana acoustic goodness that is their trademark sound.
With a stripped down to the bone production, acoustic guitar, minimal percussion (kick, tambourine, shaker), there’s nothing to distract you from Tricia Duffy’s lovely voice, and the cool harmonies of Al Bird, something the duo is famous for.
The song is a strong one, it’s catchy and it works well even with this limited instrumentation, thanks to the great melodic sensibility and the soulful vocal performances. It’s all about luck, you see, and how some people have more than others, and how in the end, we all should be grateful of what we have. A positive message for a positive song that shines with its genial simplicity and heartfelt delivery.
Recommended to everyone who likes their songs raw and true.
Verdict: 5/5 beards Get it now!
