Vevo DSCVRJade Bird - Uh Huh an exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.
It could be hushed and introspective. It could be frantic and explosive. Stylistic breadth is one great thing about Jade Bird's music. The UK singer with the EP entitled 'Something American' has a strong grip on a variety of approaches, and the pay-off is substantial. The poise of "What Am I Here For," the attack of "Cathedral" - each gives you a great view into the songbook of a young woman who spent her childhood in South Wales and her teenage years in London, playing coffeehouses, blues clubs and any other spot that would lend her a stage. Even though she was armed with an Oasis chord book, the first proper song she learned was Mazzy Star's "Into Dust." And even though her mom and dad blasted Chemical Bros, The Prodigy and Aphex Twin, she wound up loving Son House. Maybe you've heard "Lottery" and "Furious." If so, they've probably made a dent. Bird's music is instantly memorable. We know that this DSCVR version of her "Uh Huh" is going to impress. The 20-year-old and her band come on with the ferociousness of the Breeders during their performance. Stand back, absorb it all, and head out find more Jade Bird.
