Sounds of Sunday – upbeat girls singing about birds

June 26, 2016

I don’t know anything about the Be Good Tanyas but I adore this cute little song. I see the chords are online so I can add it into my ukulele repertoire! Yay!

So, about the band – they’re Canadian, which is pretty much all I knew:

Alt folk trio The Be Good Tanyas have achieved cult status since the band’s luminous debut Blue Horse, an album named one of 2002’s top 50 releases by Q magazine (UK), firmly established the group on the Americana music scene. With subsequent releases, Chinatown and Hello Love, the band has met with ever growing critical and fan acclaim, garnering 4 star reviews in Rolling Stone and MOJO magazine and selling out concert halls across North America and Europe.

Frazey Ford, Trish Klein and Samantha Parton; three women with gorgeous, haunting and plaintive voices accompanied by rustic, sparse and soulful instrumentation, high lonesome harmonies, and intelligent song-writing.

This song is on the Blue Horse album. I love it!
