Biography

Sharp newcomers THE REAL BIRDBRAIN stamp rock’n’roll on Sydney’s inner-west.
In Grohl like fashion, BIRD OF PARADISE threw off the shackles of drumdom in favour of the midnight black Fender Telecaster. HONEYEATER, with unsurpassed enthusiasm, took to the
drums (Black Ludwig Rocker) and discovered that making phat beats isn’t all that! Jazz-school drop out OLD ROBIN has the dubious title of best-in-band, thundering away on the Swordsman down below.
Hitmakers Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly fuse with Eagles of Death Metal and the Lemonheads to influence the tsubi-tight hooks and sing song choruses of this stylishly powerful trio. So chin up, tits out, paint on some black jeans and get ready to puncture the foldback wedge with your pointiest boots... press play and hula to hell and back with THE REAL BIRDBRAIN.
Collectively, Evan Mannell, Lucian McGuiness and Zoe Hauptmann are or have been members of Bertie Blackmann, King Curly, Coda, House of Orange, The Porkers, King Tide and more. Their first single Everything Snaps quick steps from the basement like a hot August New York night at CBGBs.

Lyrics

Everything Snaps

Written By: Z.Hauptmann/E.Mannell/L.McGuiness

bang smack you're back in the middle of it
oh woah woah woah
getting tired of not seeing through all the shit
there's piles of it
and now your cool has come undone
oh woah woah woah
it feels like work instead of fun
it's time to run

you've got to own it, and push it
and dig it and move it
and force it, and keep it clean and
pay for the breakages

what now is pink you thought was red
oh woah woah woah
that sneaky shit was left unsaid
then you put it to bed
been going on for the longest time
oh woah woah woah
you throw a tantrum have a cry
and you wonder why

you've got to own it, and push it
and dig it and move it
and force it, and keep it clean and
pay for the breakages
beat it, and hold it
and want it and need it
and prick it, and make it bleed and
pay for the breakages

and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone

and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone
and now your cool has come undone
