Watch & Listen
"Arcuni's unhinged vocals recall the
whisper-to-a-scream theatrics of Black Francis and the
Pixies, the song arrangements build from pensive
acoustic openings to a glorious pin-your-ears-back
din, and the musical influences range from the
shambolic swagger of The Replacements and the 'New New
Wave' basslines of The Strokes to the weathered
Americana textures of The Band. Raging rock 'n' roll
with banjos and cellos? Believe it."
"Just a cursory listen to the highpoints of No Midnight makes it
abundantly clear how Birdmonster are a band constantly wriggling out
of people's naïve conception of how certain songs should begin and end."
"They're believable, and I think that's the highest compliment
I can give a band"
"Northern California's Collisionville fuses a loud, post-punk sound with down-home Americana to create sardonically sincere songs that are well put together and streaked with the humor that eludes more self-serious bands." Eliot Van Buskirk, Wired Magazine
