Wide Awake I See the Storm (2nd album)


Physical copy – Wide Awake I See The Storm’ is Tailor Birds’ 2nd album. The follow on from debut album, ‘Runaway Sailors, Stay at Home Wives’, the sound is more developed and provides a lush merging of electronics and acoustic sounds, experimental and classical elements, and a unique energy and vibrancy.
