A Lot Like Birds’ previous album ‘No Place’ remains one of my favourite records due to its fantastic lyrical concept, emotional delivery and hugely impressive performances from every band member. When Kurt Travis left the band I was gutted that I wouldn’t get to hear a follow-up record by the same band, but at the same time I was interested to see what would happen next.

‘For Shelley’ is the first track to be released from this next chapter of A Lot Like Birds and at first I was underwhelmed but having understood the message behind the song, and the ramifications it has had on the mentality of the band as a whole, I’m more excited than ever to hear the next full-length ‘DIVISI’ on May 5th.
