Discoveries: The Bird and the Bee
A MySpace music sensation Inara George (The Bird) and Greg Kurstin (The Bee), The Bird and the Bee offered their fresh approach to electronic music with slight influences from jazz, new wave and pop-rock. The duo falls in the indietronica sub-genre with dreamy songs and catchy tunes carrying 80s nostalgia. Their music brings together the best of both sides: Inara's mellow voice and Greg's instrumentals. Elegant and sophisticated The Bird and the Bee draw inspiration from French pop that serves as the backbone of the sound and appearance they have introduced. Up to date the duo has released two albums and four EPs with the eponymous debut from 2007 being my personal favourite.
