TUNE Pet Deaths - wind up bird
The album’s opening track 'Wind Up Bird' showcases the scope of dynamics in the musical arrangement of the record. It begins with subtle, earthly bird noises and a hypnotic guitar loop. As the song develops, this loop remains still amidst a flurry of atmospheric sounds and percussion. Karima’s vocal execution is confident yet fragile, with lyrical echoes of Ginsberg and Murakami.
"The song is loosely based around the theme of a long term relationship which is slowly taking a bitter turn," adds Karima, "you both feel it, connection is being lost, we lose energy and patience and things start to repeat themselves, like a wind up toy.
