Building on the success of his debut single ‘How Do You Want Me?”, Tanzos, aka Mik Tanzos, delivers another song that has top ten written all over it. ‘Birdy’, the tale of love gone wrong, is a departure from the edgier sound of HDYWM. Mik opted for a more laid back feel on ‘Birdy’ that works very well with the message in the lyrics. Dreamy synths, soft orchestration flowing along in the back, and smooth picking on the guitar set ‘Birdy’ up to be hit repeat song.
Discussing the influence behind the track, Tanzos tells us: “Birdy tells the story of a
couple´s life design falling apart after compromising for too long. Naturally the song
has a melancholic tone, but it is not desperate. Conciliation beats the bitterness.”
I can only hope that Mik releases a full album soon because his singles are killing me sonically. The good thing about the release of ‘Birdy’ is that I now have two songs in his playlist, it’s getting better all the time.
