Kelly Moran – “Love Birds, Night Birds, Devil-Birds”

Post Author: Jeff Cubbison

Brooklyn experimental musician/producer Kelly Moran has released a brilliant new one-off single – the swelling and expansive composition “Love Birds, Night Birds, Devil-Birds” – via Adult Swim’s Singles series. Over an ominous, humming synth that builds and crescendos throughout, Moran lays down a series of intricate and airy piano notes that clatter, wind, and bend in a myriad of hypnotic ways. It’s yet another jaw-dropping display from the ambitious, forward-thinking artist.

Moran composed the track as the score for visual artist Cassie McQuater’s installation at the Frieze L.A. Art Fair this past February. It’s the latest in a series of collaborations between the two, which also included Moran’s video for “Water Music,” as well as the cover art for her forthcoming EP Origin, out this Friday via Warp. The record features unreleased tracks and acoustic demos from the recording sessions for her previous LP Ultraviolet. You can pre-order Origin HERE, and listen to “Love Birds, Night Birds, Devil-Birds” below via Adult Swim.
