Closing Ceremony - the new album // March 2020

Umbrellabirds is the musical project of Sam Blickhan, Lewis Daly, and Alex Hunt. Umbrellabirds began as a long-distance recording project when Sam Blickhan and Lewis Daly began exchanging demos in 2013. Alex Hunt heard these sparsely beautiful demos and initially signed up to produce, but was soon recruited as a full band member. The intricate, autumnal debut album was recorded in 2014-16, the product of many late nights and countless miles of travel. Oda Almås played strings on the self-titled debut. Shortly thereafter, the band began work on their second album - Closing Ceremony - featuring a bigger sound and a wider collective of musicians including Shyam Prasad on drums, Will Harvey on strings, and Cath Day on clarinet. Closing Ceremony was released in March 2020.

About the Album:
Umbrellabirds' second album Closing Ceremony was released in March 2020. The band began work on the album in 2016 shortly after the release of their self-titled debut. Lyrically, the album deals with themes of death, grief, and loss. Expanding the band's sound of lyrical harmonised indie-folk to incorporate elements of electronic / alternative rock, Closing Ceremony features a bigger sound and a wider collective of musicians including Shyam Prasad on drums, Will Harvey on strings, and Cath Day on clarinet.
