Mimicking Birds’ singer/songwriter Nate Lacy is broadening his horizons. And then shrinking them back down to microscopic levels.
With the band’s immersive and textural new album Layers of Us (due out Jan 2018 via Glacial Pace), Lacy takes us on an epic journey that examines both “the infinite and the infinitesimal” with equal amounts of wonder.
Layers of Us is Mimicking Birds’ third full-length album with producer Jeremy Sherrer (Modest Mouse, Dandy Warhols, The Shins). Recorded at Isaac Brock’s Ice Cream Party Studios, it’s easily their most ambitious work to date. If their self-titled 2010 debut established the band as fearlessly honest, and 2014’s Eons demonstrated added depth and experimentation, then Layers of Us represents the maturity that comes with touring extensively and continuing to expand their sound.
