Performing on the Main Stage at the Party, Birds and Batteries is never easy to categorize. Previously revered by some as alt-country garage, fuzzy synth psych, or electronic pop, Birds & Batteries again find themselves in new territory with their latest EP, Up To No Good. Songwriter Mike Sempert describes it as "a spooky-funky adventure."
Praise for the Up To No Good EP:
“Like a high concept mashup... an electronic landscape that’s actually pretty akin to being out in the woods, immersed in a barrage of chattering, ebullient life” — Pitchfork
“Like watching Halloween on a bunch of cough syrup… then a dizzy and slowed dance party” — FADER
“Twenty minutes of synth pop bliss” — URB
