Ok so no idea how I missed this release, but seeing as it went under the radar of both what and discogs, I don’t feel too bad about being asleep at the wheel. Dark, gothic, syth, glamor kids from Vancouver, Terror Bird apparently snuck out a new 7” ep release all the way back in March and decided to tell no one about it. They put it out as the first release on new mirco label Verulamium Records based out of London.
Now the good news: even though its limited 500 copies apparently they are still available. I find this very surprising and to be honest the reason this all came up is because I was posting on the new Blouse LP, making comparisons to these guys…a quick google search later to find this release.
I think Nikki Never and her band Terror Bird are completely of a similar caliber to Blouse and better than plenty of other unbuzzworthy bands about. Guess their releases have just stayed on more obscure labels (Human Culture LP is still available via Night People) and kept them out of the limelight. Well mark my words, these kids are talented and on the brink of something great, so stock up on their tunes while you can.
Terror Bird - Waiting for Nothing EP is out now and Ltd to 500 copies on rad brown vinyl from Verulamium Records herefor only about $10 bones including overseas shipping to the states. Not too bad at all.
