Bird Concerns is a rock band “swathed in lush harmonies and structures that straddle the line between sweet ’n’ simple, and progressive.” (LA weekly) The band formed in 2013 at Cal Arts by singer/songwriters Marcus Buser and Travis Meador whilst studying jazz bass and classical piano, respectively. The friends bonded over a mutual love of surfing, skating, and Simon & Garfunkel. With the addition of drummer Cooper Wolken and guitarist Jake Sucher, the band was born. The quartet brings “massive melodies, four-part harmonies and crunchy guitars together…”(Atwood Magazine) juxtaposed with “an appreciation of the more traditional, colorful structures provided by jazz and classical music.” (Pop Matters) Their premier Ep entitled Is This Really Love? was released in the summer of 2017, they are currently in process of recording a full length record to be released in spring 2019.
