“Birds” is one of the first batch of singles from the Morals‘ Music, Tree, Life, Understanding. With a devastatingly simple arrangement for the bulk of the song – guitar, vocals and drums – the song, thanks to lead singer Holliehobby’s gorgeous voice expresses a profound heart aching sorrow; the sort of sorrow that comes from the bust up of a lengthy relationship. (The song is actually heavily influenced by Holliehobby’s then-impending divorce.)
