Futurebirds announce Portico EP series

by Woody on November 11, 2016


Long time HearYa faves, Futurebirds have released part one of a 2 EP series titled Portico. Upon stumbling across a Baptist church that dated over 100 years on the outskirts of Athens, GA; the band felt compelled to set up shop and record there. Portico I is out today and Portico II will be out in early 2017. I’ve spun it once and it immediately slides in with the rest of their catalog as Futurebirds continue to be among the leading voice for Cosmic Americana. Here is a little more info on the project.

The resulting work is a two-part album, aptly titled Portico I & II – which embodies songs on life and love. Cover songs like “From Me To You,” about sending love to a longing lover, or the original “Only Here For Your Love,” about the humble and simple nature of love in its purest forms.

On the work, Johnson states “The songs are a reflection of our own desires and lives, the music a reflection of doing what feels right, and only what feels right, regardless of outside influence or objections. This is our way of taking our music, lives, and futures into our own hands, and what greater cause is there?”
