Everything is coming up roses for psych-pop outfit Maybird. Originally formed in Rochester, NY by frontman Josh Netsky and his drumming brother, Adam Netsky, Maybird went through a few different line-ups and a name change before settling down as a four-piece in Brooklyn, NY. Maybird’s debut release under the new name came in 2013; Down & Under showed a move away from Netskey’s indie leanings towards a more expansive psychedelic sound. After its release the group received a cold call from producer-extraordinaire Danger Mouse, who loved the sound and signed them to his new label. Now Maybird have just wrapped production on a single with The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. Their latest release, Unravelling, seamlessly blends psych-pop instrumentals with a roots-rock sensibility. The EP moves from quiet to restless to euphoric and drags you right along with it. We were lucky enough to have Maybird stop past Studio 1A. Check out the full session below!
