The Falling Birds / Press

"The sort of rowdiness not heard since the glory days of the Violent Femmes."

"Native America is a winner because it isn't afraid to go in multiple directions, and that is refreshing."

“They have the talent to go in just about any direction they please.”

“There is an appealing fearlessness to the band’s presentation that fuels the energy up from the start and keeps it on high throughout this raw, gritty release.”

“This is a band to watch.”

“A brilliant debut from The Falling Birds, and really shows how versatile they are.”

“Whether the EP is meant to present a single arc and what the details of that narrative might be is for The Falling Birds to know and you to decide for yourself, but the journey is one well worth taking.”

“New Record From The Falling Birds, This One Will Fly!”

“You can't help but feel pain and optimism, the kind of music that can only come from a rejuvenated veteran or a talented youth”

“A band that has fired off the first in what seems to be a series of incoming warning shots alarming the press world to the return of raw rock n roll to New York City.”

“BROOKLYN BAND ON THE RISE, THE FALLING BIRDS, RELEASE NEW SINGLE "IF TIME ALLOWS"”

“The band mixes genres of music including blues and country, grunge and rock, which really enhances the eclectic sound The Falling Birds portrays through their music... I can't wait to see what else this trio has in store for their fans and listeners to come.”

“Tossing caution to the wind as this trio from NYC plays whatever the hell they want.”

“It is pop brought to you without overt production, whimsy flourishes, and excessive overlays. It is just there, sort of like Guided By Voices ...”

“Featured interview with The Falling Birds”

“New York’s The Falling Birds yield a raspy voiced folk-rock sound that’s full of highs and lows, brassy harmonica and the kind of story-esc lyrics that bring to mind someone like Bright Eyes.”

“The Falling Birds: Bringing the Beat to the Bitter End”

“His look spurred images of Bruce Springsteen and his lyrics had a touch of Bob Dylan and John Cougar. The band the Falling Birds is a group that is determined to entertain yet also educate.”

“The passion behind the lyrics and song are unwavering”

“For a short EP, The Falling Birds cast their net far, but never does it fail to bring in a catch. They don’t let themselves fall into one single genre or style and they never stick to a dominant emotion, but explore every possibility within a reasonably sized radius and rarely does it fail. In fact, it doesn’t. For its ambitions, it’s an amazingly concise and formulated record. Native America makes the perfect first statement for a band in a city where everyone is fighting to make their own mark. The EP will be released June 17th.”

“All in all very fun stuff, and a tune that makes The Falling Birds a band worth watching.”

“Brooklyn's rising band The Falling Birds... are similar sounding to The Black Lips and Bright Eyes”

“a wonderful bit of lo-fi rock that will appease fans”

“Rock is still alive and growing thanks to bands such as Brooklyn’s The Falling Birds... With this EP The Falling Birds show that the time of rock isn’t over and it will rise again.”

“Here on April 4, 2014 the same blood and sweat was being spilled on the hardwood stage among swaying young fans. On the hardwood stage a man in a red bandana wrapped around his forehead strummed his guitar as the drummer struck a beat. His look spurred images of Bruce Springsteen and his lyrics had a touch of Bob Dylan and John Cougar. The band the Falling Birds is a group that is determined to entertain yet also educate.”

“The band as a whole has been influenced by acts like Jack White, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their performance at the Bitter End invoked the spirit of all these artists. From Stephen playing the guitar and harmonica with the red bandana to Nick belting away the bass and David rolling one beat after another. Their set was more than well received with the audience screaming for not one but two more songs!”

"The EP shows great potential for a band that clearly is devoted to their art form and wants to portray a message and doing so through the mediums of rock ‘n’ roll... they have fused classic rock with blues and country as well as elements of grunge..."

“While principle songwriter Stephen Artemis grew up in Albany enthralled by the sounds post punk and 90′s grunge, The Falling Birds yield a much more raspy voiced folk-rock sound that is full of highs and lows, brassy harmonica and the kind of story-esque lyrics that bring to mind someone like Bright Eyes.”

“We’re throughly enjoying this EP from NYC’s Falling Birds, whose fuzzed up garage rock recalls the The Black Lips, but with a dash of Bright Eyes’ folky storytelling sensibilities and a smattering of classic rock’n’roll thrown in for good measure.”

“There is some really cool and inspiring “started from scratch” kind of music coming to us out of New York. The Falling Birds seem to have a very wide potential; writing songs that span from folk-like with acoustic and harmonica, to numbers that are as punk or rock as it gets. It is very vividly clear in their sound that their influences come from many different eras ranging from rock and roll’s roots to present day.”
