Another SXSW has come and gone and with it comes two things: breathing room accompanied with a restored sense of sanity and the discovery of some incredible new talent. Jade Bird‘s been on our radar for awhile, and SXSW this year proved why with the festival awarding the Londoner the esteemed SXSW Grulke Prize for Developing Non-U.S. Act. Bird’s unparalleled charm is matched by her talent for songwriting that goes well beyond her twenty years of life experiences, possessing not only a proclivity for the axe, but for the pen as well. Her lyrics are honest and complicated, regardless if it’s about healing from a toxic relationship or lamenting her own role in them. And on that, we bring you “Cathedral,” recorded live last Friday at the Four Seasons.
