New Release: The Mynabirds – ‘Generals’ + Video

 

Ever since first hearing “Generals” in March, we couldn’t stop gushing about it. Now finally, Nebraska band The Mynabirds release a video to go with the revolutionary minded track.

Yes, we are indeed shimmying and shaking it all over again with this one; The black and white 50s style video is pretty damn killer – these ladies are owning it!

Also this week, The Mynabirds released their politically charged sophomore album called Generals as well. The sound is a potent blend of rock, pop, dance, soul, and some serious percussive force.

New Track: The Mynabirds – “Generals” + MP3

 

Fronted by singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn, The Mynabirds are a Nebraska based band with enough attitude for the whole town. On the cusp of releasing their sophomore album, Generals on June 5th, The Mynabirds have released their title track to show you exactly how much business they mean.

Aptly naming the album after a Richard Avedon photo entitled “Generals of the Daughters of the American Revolution,” Generals is a concept album, which Burhenn aims to use as a positive vehicle to exercise her political frustration. Sonically, you can look out for tinges of PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, and David Bowie, with percussion heavy tunes borrowing from hip hop and African rhythms, resulting in a soulful brand of rock reminiscent of The Kills.
