    Bitter Birds debut full length featuring Singer Mayberry on guitar and vocals and David Lujan on drums, vocals and bass organ. Playing music together since around 2004 in their former band Red Leaves, Lujan and Mayberry started this new project as a duo in 2011. Discovering the best way to act as both drummer and bass player for the band, Lujan built a foot pedal organ keyboard to play live and record with. They are now on their second iteration of bass pedal keys and the result can be heard on this album.

Written after taking our daughter to her first carnival.


Turning your world upside down.
Change from your pockets goes out windows.
Don't know how we can sit so quietly,
backwards in circles don't look now.

I'm feeling strange my head is loud.
I can't see straight I can't sit down.
Don't know how anyone sits comfortably
hands in the air once more around

uh oh uh oh

Turning my head up to the clouds,
can't hear you scream its just so loud.
I'm letting this thing take control of me.
I'm feeling stuck i can't get out.

uh oh uh oh

Bitter Birds “lures the senses in with a brooding, slightly more experimental side of indie pop, which some fans have compared to early Cure – less poppy and more deliciously bleak.” – Laurie Gallardo, Austin Music Minute KUTX 98.9
