FREE MP3: Andrew Bird "Oh No"

A musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performing since 1996, Andrew Bird produces orchestrated beauties with every song he creates.

The featured download from Andrew Bird, “Oh No”, reminds me of Death Cab and The Shins mixed with an oldies sound like the Beatles and Tony Orlando.  The song features catchy whistling and is very mellow and relaxing.   Just like when you listen to “Horchata” by Vampire Weekend, the song instantly produces a cheerful mood. 

I know we all hate when we find a song and then it becomes popular after you have “claimed” it.  We are like, “No that’s MY song.”  But “Oh No” may have gained some popularity points being featured in the movie, “Charlie St. Cloud”, starring Zac Efron {insert adoring sigh here}.

Growing up, Andrew Bird was surrounded by classical music, Irish tunes, bluegrass, and folk music.  He actually plays the violin in many of his songs too!  He is quoted as saying that he found indie rock and pop music to be repetitive and boring, but he now understands it better (good thing, because his indie rock vibe is amazing).

If you love, “Oh No”, and want to hear more, Bird released his twelfth studio album, Break It Yourself, on March 6, 2012. And if you want even more from this insanely talented performer, he will be in Chicago on May 12th, performing at the Auditorium Theatre… Check him out!!
