San Francisco-based art rock group Birds and Batteries blend an amazing variety of influences ranging from New Wave to synthpop to classic rock to create a unique, hard-to-classify sound. The result is somehow modern and hip while harking back to the days of classic acts like Bowie, the Talking Heads, and Tom Petty. Its actually probably better if you just hear it for yourself, since most attempts at description are just as schizophrenic as mine was - check out the tracks they have streaming at their website (link below).

Birds and Batteries' flawless integration of their many disparate influences won them widespread acclaim during a winter run of festivals, including SXSW and Noise Pop. Their third album, Panorama, has since been released on Velvet Blue Music, to similarly widespread, and well-deserved, accolades.

Birds and Batteries are supporting Panorama with a nationwide tour that is currently in its final stages. Frontman Mike Sempert will play a few solo dates after the conclusion of the tour.
