“Diverse and inventive, “You Knew” positively spills over with ideas and enthusiasm — the hallmark of a left-field treasure to discover and cherish.” – NPR Music
A truly rare species of bird, Mother Falcon combine orchestral music and indie rock in a way that few have heard before; dynamic and infectious, the band’s debut album You Knew (out today) expertly layers the instrumentation of all eighteen band members on the band’s genre-defying album.
The group – which boasts three cellos, six violins, horns a plenty, several pianos, a bassoon and a glockenspiel – has developed a cult following in their native Austin, receiving as many accolades for their innovative film scoring as for their electric live rock club performances. They were even cited and as one of Bob Boilen’s “15 Essential Moments From SXSW 2013” and Stephen Thompson dubbed the group his “favorite young band of the festival’s opening night.”
Recently signed to Red Ryder Entertainment, the band is excited to share a booking agency with Andrew Bird, The Magnetic Fields, Sharon Van Etten and more as they continue to grow and start taking their live show on the road. Mother Falcon will be embarking upon a New York City residency at Joe’s Pub in June and another in Los Angeles in August, along with a string of regional tour dates in between including World Café Life on June 22nd in Philadelphia.
In just three years together, Mother Falcon has crafted a signature soundscape with their blending of traditional rock elements and whirling horns with strings that dominate and dance behind emotive vocal turns, balancing the distinctive croon of Tamir Kalifa against ethereal harmonies between Nick Gregg and Claire Puckett.
