The Mynabirds release third album Lovers Know (7th August)

The Mynabirds 2

The Mynabirds‘s futuristic explorations into the universal themes of love and loss make third LP ‘Lovers Know’ a work that is described by Best Fit as a “disarming admission of vulnerability”.

In their 8/10 star review, they cite the record’s more introspective lyrical themes as an “acknowledgement of one’s vulnerability, disorientation, and shortcomings” as being “much or more a component of strength than tough posturing”.

Released via Saddle Creek on the 7th August, listen to The Mynabirds’ visceral synthpop on Lovers Know.
