ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Savage folkery and lush acoustica from this impressive Oxford four-piece.

Untie the Wind, the debut album by Telling the Bees, is inspired by folklore and the politics of protest. With soulful vocals and intelligent lyrics, underpinned by driving mandolin licks, funky bass lines, cinematic strings and haunting English bagpipes, Telling the Bees evoke a darkly familiar England of rustic charm and savage beauty.

‘Wood’ tells the story of a mandolin, from tree to finished instrument; ‘Quietly Raging’ laments the building of new roads; while the title track, ‘Untie the Wind’ invokes the very elements themselves.

"Lyrical, vibey, mesmerizing" - Oxford Folk Festival

"This is a band that conjures hauntingly beautiful music, simple as that. The lyrics are pure poetry gliding over an intrigue of subtle impressive music that calls you to listen" - Folkwords
