“Exotic Bird” by Snowblink

Snowblink have released their new video for “Exotic Bird”. The track is off their current release Returning Current. Filmed in Los Angeles with director Dawn Garcia (Destroyer’s “Kaputt”) and styled by Christina Marie-Karr Lyon, the song “began as a repository for an unrealizable crush, a place for those difficult and irresolvable feelings to live,” says Daniela Gesundheit. “It has since taken on a different meaning for me as I have performed it and re-worked the song for various contexts. I now think of the Exotic Bird as a sort of avatar for deep longing – that deep longing starts to take the form of brilliant iridescent feathers, a proud, unexpected beak, an unforeseen wingspan, a wild call, and it comes and perches on one’s shoulder as a co-pilot towards the expansive unknown.”

Returning Current, is described as a study of human relationships – to self, to other, and to Other, and to the threat or actuality of losing those unrepeatable prizes. The duo of Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman were joined in studio for the creation of Returning Current was co-producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Bahamas), and a cast of musicians including Leslie Feist, Owen Pallett, Barbara Gruska (Fiona Apple, Jenny Lewis, Ray LaMontagne), Johnny Spence (Tegan and Sara), Thom Gill, Ariel Engle (AroarA), Steven Foster (Doldrums), Felicity Williams (Bahamas), Philipe Melanson (Rufus Wainwright), Mika Posen (Timber Timbre), and many others.
