Track from the Dear and Unfamiliar album

electronics - Leonardo Rosado 
piano - Tiago Morais Morgado

'Endings and beginnings' taken from the album 'Dear and Unfamiliar'. available to pre-order on limited edition colored vinyl, cd, and as a digital album, here:http://denovali.com/birdsofpassage/

"…Alicia Merz from Birds of Passage has recorded a cinematic concept album together with Leonardo Rosado from Portugal. It is a good choice to work together with Rosado because the dark minimalistic pop music is even better worked than on the debut ‘Without the World’. It makes ‘Dear and Unfamiliar’ easier to digest and more interesting to hear…"

FLUID RADIO review of Dear and Unfamiliar my collaboration album with Birds of Passage, to be released the 28th October at Denovali in LP, CD and digital versions. Pre-orders very soon. And if you want follow us at Facebook and/or Souncloud, for updates.
"…There are hints of classical Indian drone in the music you are listening to now – more classical than those European and American ambient soundscapes that often lay claim to the name ‘drone’. And yet there is a woman’s voice, she sings about Paris and lullabies and kisses, not in Hindi nor Brajbhasha but in English. The voice hangs heavy over fuzzy guitars, synths and manipulated acoustics like a heat haze over the horizon. The lush, warm sounds leave you unsettled and disarmed. They are as vague and intense as a dream, and they will not let you rest easy. “Dear and Unfamiliar” would seem a strikingly appropriate title…”
