“Everyone knows the character of Eve from the bible, and everyone has their own ideas about her. But if she was wandering around America in 2019, what the hell would she say?” wonders Siri Undlin of indie-folk band Humbird.
Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and inspired by the crystalline chill of the state’s Northern winters, Undlin creates experimental folk and environmental Americana tinged with the sophistication of classic orchestral compositions. Her upcoming album Pharmakon, out August 30, focuses on women and the female body in folklore as a poetic way to explore the human experience. Working with engineer Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens) and producer Shane Leonard (Field Report), Undlin’s newest release joins the leagues of masterful indie storytellers. Humbird will be traveling as a trio on tour this fall, with Undlin joined by Peter Quirsfield and Pat Kuehn. Their fresh experiments together make the songs feel new every time.
