Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – All Function One, BirdPen

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at the brand new album by BirdPen – All Function One

Modern Junk

This song starts with a really interesting drum beat that is emphasized with an electronic bassline and a tambourine melody which makes it a toe tapping delight. The style of music really creates this emotion that depicts the title of Modern Junk and the way that the lyrics intertwine through the catchy rhythms means it creates this really catchy interesting track. It feels like it in some places echoes the styles of eighties and nineties alternative and then mixes it with modern melodies to create this fresh sound. About two thirds of the way through there is this musical interlude that takes this track to a whole different level of creativity.

Seat 35

This is a track that opens with an electronic sound that is slightly off key which creates this sense of mystery and wonder, with the drum beat below it feels dramatic and empowering. This song feels like it is taking you on a journey and it paints an image on your head which feels of discomfort and sadness. The lyrics are emotional and allow you to experience the music sensation in many different depths


The guitar melodies at the beginning of this song are rhythmic and create this dreamlike vibe and when the drums start to kick in it feels like a track you would listen to on a summers day. This is a track that is very catchy and is one that you will be sure to listen to over and over again. The thing that I like about this track is that whilst the strings are subtly placed throughout they create such a beautiful melody to this track and make it one of my favourites on the album


This song welcomes you with a really melodic choral sound draped over this punchy and dramatic drumbeat to create this really disorientating sound. The sound really makes the lyrics punch out of the music and create this emotional and exciting finale to the album. It feels like it is concluding your adventure through the music and it works so well. The strings make a visit in this song again and makes this wonderful section of the track that really has such emotion and feeling to it that it almost feels cinematic.
