Them Bird Things - біографія, альбоми, пісні, кліпи

Them Bird Things, formed in late 2007, is a collaboration between a Finnish singer Salla Day, two American songwriting legends Steve Blodgett & Mike Brassard, and producer Will Shade, who drafted Timo Vikkula, Esa Jussila and Ville Särmä into their ranks to capture the magic of a music that traveled across oceans of time and space. Them Bird Things deliver a potent potpourri of Americana, running the gamut from folk-rock rave-ups to lysergic jamborees to rockabilly hootenannies.


Multi-instrumentalist Arttu Tolonen showed up in time for the band’s second album and in 2012, Chuck Eddy cited the act as being the #1 Country band in the world in the January issue of Nashville Scene. He had previously named their sophomore effort, “Wildlike Wonder,” as the 9th best release of 2011 in the Village Voice’s annual Pazz & Jop poll.


In the interim, the band settled into the configuration of Salla Day, Timo Vikkula, Arttu Tolonen and Affe Forsman. Them Bird Things geared up to release their third album, “Pachyderm Nightmares,” that autumn. This album is to be a departure from their previous two albums in that the songwriting is self-penned.
