Oh happy day. It’s been a bally long time coming, but our album Silver Birches is finally available to buy.
Yep, you can swap coins for it online via the Rough Trade, Amazon or iTunes websites, or pick up a physical copy at the Music Exchange if you happen to dwell in Nottingham. We’ll also be selling copies at all future gigs from a fancy red and white suitcase (we’ll consider sensible offers on the suitcase as well).
If you’re new to us, or aren’t sure whether to take the plunge, the first reviews of the full album can be found online at Contact Music and The Sound of Confusion. Or just trust your own ears and check out our music and video.
Other choice quotes that have made us smile (some about our first single Happy as Clams) include:
Beirut-esque in its loveliness Time Out
Sparse yet lovely indie-folk spiked with tasty wordplay The Metro
Pleasant, thoroughly nice, very British The Guardian
Beautiful sonic syrup James Yuill
They can turn their capable hands to many folk offshoots and each one is a success Sound of Confusion
Their sound conjures up idiosyncratic images of a cold winter’s walk through a frost-glistened meadow… ‘The Forest’ is an opulent reminder of the underrated Lowgold…closing epic ‘This Won’t Last’ gives the likes of Elbow a run for their money…A promising debut that hints at a whole lot more in the future.

Hey Now is a great find…it just builds, and builds and builds Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
A unique folk band with the richest keyboards and vocals I’ve heard for a long time LeftLion
Really showcases the talent that Injured Birds have as musicians Popped Culture
Enjoyable little burst of folky blues mixing subtly violent anger with gentle vocals and perky notes Idol Magazine
Beautiful yet haunting, funny yet sad…mezmerising, deep layered lyrics Kezys Blog
