between roof and bird
Over the past few months, I've become quite fond of France's "Toy Fight Collective," a rotating cast of Paris' finest that have at one time or another played in Toy Fight. The newest project to come from this talented collective of musicians is the The Limes, a transatlantic group consisting of Mina Tindle, Orouni, and Toy Fight themselves. This wonderful song was written by Durham's Henry Sparrow, the newest member of the Toy Fight collective/a founding member of the Limes, and from what I can gather, the only one that lives in the states. From Mr. Sparrow himself:
"What we aim to do is to "cover" or finish each others ideas, bringing a fresh approach to the material we are sharing. "Between Roof And Bird" is an excellent example of this, being that they (Toy Fight and Mina Tindle) transformed the song into a beautiful waltz. I am nearly finished with my version of David's (Toy Fight) "Miniature", so pretty soon we will have 2 finished songs. We are very excited about this, and plan on keeping this up until we can, eventually, have an albums worth of material. It's really wonderful, that we have never physically met each other, but have managed to start forging a strong musical relationship. For some reason, we seem to share a very similar musical aesthetic, and we have become good friends, as well."
We're very proud to premiere "Between Roof and Bird," featuring Henry Sparrow's gorgeous melody, brought to life by arrangements from the members of Toy Fight, and vocals by the lovely Ms. Tindle:
