    label: rainbow quartz

    The Bye Bye Blackbirds hail from Oakland, California with former members of Yuji Oniki, Overwhelming Colorfast, Scott Miller (Game Theory/Loud Family), Kingdom County, Samiam and The Mr. T Experience. The band’s sound has best been described by power pop icon Bruce Brodeen of notlame.com as follows: “Classic 60s pop with the moody jangle of 80s New Zealand, the melodic lushness of 70s countrypolitan... borrowing equally from... 60s and 70s staples such as the Byrds, Big Star, Badfinger, and the Only Ones to 80s icons such as XTC, the Go-Betweens, and the C86 scene... along with some key 90s indie rock heroes like The Elephant Six collective, Lilys, Spoon and Beachwood Sparks.” They have also shared the stage with a wide array of bands including Mitch Easter, Title Tracks, Matt Nathanson
