Bleeding Heart Pigeons

Stir 

[Hlym Records]

For their sophomore LP, Bleeding Heart Pigeons chose to record in a converted farm-shed – lending a gorgeous natural reverb across the instrumentation – with vocalist Mícheál Keating taking care of production.

Predominantly channelling 2017-era Grizzly Bear’s Painted Ruins’ electronic-inflected soundscapes, the Limerick-based trio proffer their biggest, boldest, and brightest compositions to date.

From the moment Bubble Boy sweeps the listener away right up to the charming closer, Good Dogs Never Die, there’s no shortage of ambition evident across the arrangements, which the band deftly realise in each expansive composition.
