Mama Kin Spender, the collaboration between roots singer-songwriter Mama Kin and multi-instrumentalist/producer Spender, have announced plans to hit the road this November with a series of festival dates plus headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

The project debuted at this year’s Bello Winter Festival and they have an album, Golden Magnets, due in February next year.

The latest taste from Golden Magnets is the new single “Bird In Your Tree” which also comes with a brand new video.

“”Bird In Your Tree” is a kind of stream of consciousness catharsis, a song about yearning for a lover, burning alive inside, but having to keep it cool on the outside,” Spender says. “The stuff about coffee is really because I love it strong and black.”

“That bitter taste somehow helps quench the unfulfilled thirst for someone,” says Mama Kin. “While at the same time celebrating the creative power it unleashes. This song playfully explores the gritty side of desire – bitter, dirty, rusty.”

Check out the video for “Bird In Your Tree” below:

Thursday 2nd November – Australian Music Week, Cronulla, NSW
