Warner Bros Records recording artist Angelica Garcia has shared the video for her second track – “Little Bird” – from her forthcoming debut album, Medicine for Birds, due out September 30 via Warner Bros. Records.
The video premiered via American Songwriter, who described it as “an entrancing, lullaby-like track.” “Little Bird” is now available on all streaming platforms and available for download here.
Early acclaim for Garcia comes from The New York Times and NPR, with the latter exclusively premiering the official video for her first single “Orange Flower,” proclaiming it “a raucous blues rock track with perfectly sarcastic lyrics you won’t be able to get out of your head.”
The 22-year old Richmond-based songstress was born in Los Angeles, but moved to Accomac, VA as a teen when her stepfather traded a career in the music industry for the Episcopalian priesthood. Garcia’s family lived in a 200-year-old gothic brick home encircled by magnolia trees. Isolated and alone, Garcia locked herself in the parish house and fashioned a musical world that veers between ghostly gorgeous countrified blues and sly swamp Americana. With a childlike whimsy, quirky sense of humor, and dynamic delivery, it could easily soundtrack an apparitions’ ball in some Faulknerian mansion.
Medicine for Birds was recorded by Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, Switchfoot) in Nashville. “It’s like the songs grew up at that moment,” Garcia says. “Charlie showed me how big and crazy they could be. I felt like a hermit coming out. He was the ambassador to this sonic realm I didn’t know about it. The music became limitless.”
“I love it when someone tells me they relate to my work,” she says. “That’s the ultimate validation. When you’re all alone working on music, you open up. The more songs that I write, the more I realize this world… it’s kooky. It’s spooky. It’s playful. It’s funny. It’s somber. It’s goth. It’s light. It’s me.”
