Format
The morning chirping of a bird may sound cheerful and playful, but in reality it is a serious matter. The chant should not only attract females or males, but also protect the precinct from rivals.

A lonely, paranoid sound. In Kurt Vonnegut’s anti-war novel “Slaughterhouse Five”, the innocent-looking “Poo-Tee-Weet” of a songbird is even a recurring symbol of unspeakable horror. The music of Blackbird Mantra does not sound as gloomy as this introduction seems.

Nevertheless, it can’t be a coincidence that the Hamburg Psych-Rock-Quartet named themselves after the repetitive chant of a blackbird. In their songs, there is definitely a lot of chirping: electric guitars chirp in airy heights, a Wurlitzer warbles along, the drums draw extended, elegant circles.

In the center is a bass that can’t be put off by all the psychedelia. The first EP of this band was called “Riverside Bar” - according to their sound this pub seems to be a cosy place. But there is much more behind the inviting facade.
