We are delighted to herald the return of The Doomed Bird of Providence, who present their third album Burrowed into the Soft Sky – this time discarding Mark Kluzek’s vocals in favour of two twenty minute instrumentals that continue Kluzek’s obsessive and singular foray into early Australian colonial history.
“Uncompromising and at times uncomfortable” – Americana UK
The Doomed Bird of Providence release a new 5 track EP ‘You Brought the Knife’ on 13.07.15.
The full EP is now streaming over at THE WIRE
The EP is based on the life of Maria Murray (nee Middleton) – former slave and convict who found her way from Belize to Australia and a new life. In Belize (then British Honduras) she was tried and found guilty of the murder of William Mair in 1825. Mair was a disbanded soldier that Maria stayed with after she ran away from slave owner Mary White.
