"I can’t seem to write a song that doesn’t have some sort of bird reference in it" Dana Falconberry said recently to Spin magazine. Now here's an example where the bird even made it to the title. The cormorant is unique among bird species for its ability to dive up to 45 meters underwater, where it explores the alien terrain hidden beneath the ocean’s surface. On their new album, From the Forest Came the Fire, her first release in Europe (April 2016 via BB*Island), Dana Falconberry with her formidable band Medicine Bow invite the listener to look upon the world through new eyes, to ponder the intuition that drives a cormorant to dive deeper and deeper.
Diving deep into the song is what author Jim Allen/NPR just did. NPR premiered the song with a nice text . Folkradio.uk just premiered the video, see it here
