NPR Premieres Mimicking Birds New Song

 

Check out Mimicking Bird’s new song “Dead Weight,” premiered last week by NPR. “I am a corpse, you are a corpse, and we’re all the same,” Lacy sings in the song’s opening moments, and from there, “Dead Weight” doesn’t exactly brighten. But it does embark on a few mysterious and surprising journeys through time and space — fatalistic, sure, but as gorgeous as can be.” -NPR
