Hailing from the bohemian college town of Athens, Georgia, Futurebirds play laid-back country-rock with an atmospheric, psychedelic twist. The group began turning heads with the release of a self-titled EP; their backwoods harmonies and pedal steel riffs caught the attention of Autumn Tone, who released the band's debut full length, Hampton's Lullaby, in August 2010. The group issued a follow-up EP, Via Flamina; EXHUME is a sampling of their early works along with a demo and live track. The band will be releasing a new full length this Spring.
“Covered in kudzu and swathed in a blanket of humidity, spanish moss, feedback and reverb exists Futurebirds. Here, at this intersection, we find a synthesis of the two extremes of Neil Young’s yin and yang. It’s at this crossroads, on this plane that Futurebirds meld the sweet, lilting, pedal steel and harmonies of the Stray Gators with the raucous, buzzing, distortion of Crazyhorse" - Aquarium Drunkard
