Ornithopter is a post-punk band, founded in June 2010, out of Bend, Oregon. Their roots are in punk, but are more introverted, dynamic and experimental. They exhibit dissonant, yet harmonious arrangements, with thought provoking lyrics that actually have something to say, and take pride in that.
We're in the process of recording our new demo, which is set to release this Winter. Additionally, we'll be playing the northwest, as well as making the tracks available online.
The band's sound is somewhat dark, fused with a dynamic array of hard-driven instrumental, creating a complex, multi-faceted form of music, rich with internal struggle, depth, and an emotional honesty that is rare in this day and age. In fact, the key theme in "Empty Mirror" one of Ornithopter's songs, is all about integrity and being true to yourself.
With that, stay tuned for our new demo and new show dates! We will be posting new tracks in the coming months and will be making them available for download as well.
