Wildbirds & Peacedrums

Wildbirds & Peacedrums is an experimental band from Sweden consisting of two members, Mariam Wallentin and her husband Andreas Werliin
The band formed in 2006 when the members met while studying musical improvisation at the University of Gothenburg. The music mostly consists of only drums, various percussion and electronic samples, played by Andreas Werliin, and Mariam Wallentin’s vocals. Mariam Wallentin also plays strings and Andreas Werliin provides additional vocals. Their musical experimentation has been compared with Björk.

The band got critical acclaim after their first album, and in the summer of 2008 they had their first USA-tour and played at several festivals in Europe. They have also been support for acts such as Deerhoof, Efterklang, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, and St. Vincent.

Currently, Wildbirds & Peacedrums have finished two vinyl EPs: Retina (released May 24) and Iris (to be released June 21). The two EPs will be later compiled into an album entitled Rivers set to be released in August 2010
