We’re Everett Bird, a Montreal-based trio who are very stoked to be releasing our debut record, People Person, through Royal Mountain Records on February 23rd. Today, we’re sharing the first song that we wrote for the album for you – stream/share “Bucket of Dark Meat” via SoundCloud. Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan for premiering it!

“Bucket of Dark Meat” is about that feeling of anxiety that takes over when it seems like everyone is being more productive than you. On the other end,  it’s a song about suppressing that feeling with things that make you happy.

Fueled by GURU Energy Drinks, Pilsners and twenty years of friendship, People Person was written in an old Montreal apartment. Everett drank so much GURU that we actually turned purple. To fill out the line up, we picked up Mikey Arcidiacono. After catching him slappin’ and tappin’ on the razorback at Guitar World, we knew that he was the missing link. The album was recorded at Montreal’s Breakglass Studios with Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes, SUUNS), where each session wrapped up with celebratory 306’s (Pilsners) and stogies. The album we created meshes rock, jazz, and R&B, with overtones of punk and garage – pairs well with liquor and a bucket of dark meat in the park. Let us know if you would like an advance of People Person before its release later this month.

Thanks for listening to “Bucket of Dark Meat”, and stick around for even more from us this year.
