Darkbird: “Bastard Governor”

By: Jack Anderson

The group Darkbird is no stranger to Song of the Day, but just for a quick recap, it all started a few years ago when New York’s Brian Cole and L.A.’s Kelly Barnes had a chance meeting in their new home of Austin. That core duo has since expanded to a six-piece, who in 2019 has enjoyed a successful stint at SXSW, their fair share of shows in and out of town, not to mention a ton of growth.

Last week Darkbird released another new single in anticipation of their upcoming EP and although our Song of the Day was written back in 2013, it’s more-than-fitting for today’s political atmosphere, so enjoy “Bastard Governor”!
