The Birds of Night are a rock and roll band whose sound oscillates between the reverb tinged grit of Link Wray and the fuzzed-out garage rock of The Strokes.
The band formed in mid-2011 in Denton, TX. Within months they released their debut e.p., Fulton St. It was recorded and mixed by frontman Andrew Rothlisberger in the spare bedroom of his apartment using only three microphones. Fulton St. was well-received by the Dallas/Fort Worth music scene earning The Birds of Night radio play on 102.1's The Local Edge, record reviews and a winning spot in Monster Headphones' Get Famous Competition.
"On Fulton St., the band finds themselves tapping into a slew of 60's genres, and it comes out sounding fantastic." - The Record Stache therecordstache.com
"...great tunes complimented by in-the-pocket grooves and dusty harmonies. We particularly dig their soulful motown ballad "A New Sensation"..." - Working Brilliantly workingbrilliantly.com
Six months later, on June 15, 2012, the band released their its first full length album, Snaps. Recorded using the same techniques as Fulton St., Snaps was an attempt to capture the magic of the band's simple yet well-crafted live show, and since the albums album’s release, the band's momentum has accelerated. The Birds of Night are now set to share the stage with bands such as Givers, Akron/Family, David Dondero, and Makeout Videotape's Mac Demarco.
"Snaps, a stripped-down debut album that gives off a half- Creedence, half-Hendrix vibe." - Rachel Watts, Denton Record Chronicle.
"To be fair, though, none of the recording techniques or tonal qualities would matter all that much if the batch of songs on Snaps weren't so catchy and unrelentingly cool, deftly merging techniques and tones from the past and future." - Corey Graves - Central Track - Centraltrack.com
The Birds of Night are currently in the process of writing for their next record, which they plan to release early next year.
