The UK alternative rock outfit BirdPen have just released a new single and video “Invisible”. The single is taken from their forthcoming album All Function One, which is set for release on 5th March 2021 on JAR Records. The album was written, recorded and produced by the core group duo of Dave Pen (also singer and guitarist in Archive) and Mike Bird, and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios. All Function One is an album about isolation, digital sadness, loneliness, deep fakes, paranoia and living a modern cyber life.
The band described “Invisible” as a conceptual track “about being awoken suddenly on a train journey taken as a means of escape to try and find the answers to questions in your head”. They add that “the lyrics were actually written on a train while travelling to our studio. It was quiet and, as always, the few other passengers were buried eyes down on their phones while the sunlight was flicking through the trees of the beautiful New Forest rushing past the windows.” Ultimately, the band state that “the song conveys a message that hope will prevail with the knowledge that there is a world out there for us all to find.”
