Andrew Bird -Are You Serious

Virtuoso violinist, multi-instrumentalist, master arranger and damn-good whistler, Illinois resident Bird is held in high regard for good reason. His deceptively complex songs, built from plucked violin strings, witty, twisty lyrics and sprightly, nimble American folk influenced arrangements are here given a wonderful immediacy with his most personal lyrics to date as he reflects on love, fatherhood and what it means to write a love song. There’s still the trademark sly lyricism of course but here Bird puts his feelings direct and centre with a catchy, compelling classic.
