A few weeks ago we were formally introduced to The Mynabirds when they served as openers for Bright Eyes at Ryman Auditorium. In his review, Honest Tune’s David Shehi described their live set in the following way:
"The evening began with a set from The Mynabirds led by vocalist and pianist Laura Burhenn, a fitting opener who filled the air with limbering up numbers that were elementally diverse, ranging from gospel flavors to country and R&B flair. It was interesting because in the music business model – as in any business model – demographics are key. Burhenn possessed just the right levels of fragility, presence, and genuineness to quickly garner resonance with a Bright Eyes crowd that is known for its affinity for asexual musical flavor and aptitude."
Today they have released a documentary style video set to the tune of "LA Rain" from their debuty album What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood.
The video was shot by Shervin Lainez while the band was on tour with Bright Eyes.
