Birdtalker Releases Live Video for "Blue Healer"

Certain songs illicit an immediate emotional response. Birdtalker's "Blue Healer" is one of those golden few.

It's like standing in the rain on a July afternoon. It's warm yet biting. Refreshing and purely natural. It soaks you to the bone and reminds you that you are human. And you are alive. Their soul-soothing harmonies are delicately placed on dancing guitar riffs over a simple, steady rhythm; It's enough to break down and cry to. And we need more.

If their very first recording is any indication, Birdtalker are headed for big, big things, and we can hardly wait. -Caroline Bowman
