Slow Down Things Ain't Gonna Be Easy
Another band that managed to come out with a great first album but then split up is The Wildbirds. The Kings Of Leon references were heard as soon as the southern swagger and lead singer's Nicholas Stewart's drawl came blasting through the stereo. That's where the reference stops though as The Wildbirds were more than a southern rock sounding band. They managed to vary their sound throughout the album and show us that there was more to the band than just the singles. Releasing only 1 album Golden Daze it caught everyone's attention but the original line-up split in 2008 after a short tour. Then in February 2010 it was announced that they had reformed, minus 3 of the original members, and in July 2010 they issued the Sunshine Blues EP. Get ready to move:
Unfortunately there aren't many videos for the band but definitely check out the album Golden Daze and new EP Sunshine Blues. Something to get your toes tapping and butt shaking...
