Anyone who’s been reading the Graduation Music site throughout the last year will most certainly recognize theworldbirdie’s name. The Barnstable-native has compiled a bright discography that gracefully captures the relaxed feeling of the Cape. Working alongside his good friend, Pope, theworldbirdie adds “Footup” to his arsenal of music, a highly-listenable release that marks a solid beginning to the artist’s 2019.
After Isaac Dunbar, theworldbirdie is the only other artist from Barnstable that I’m familiar with, however both I’d consider to be some of my favorites in Massachusetts. theworldbirdie released an exceptional project this past summer titled ARTx, and since then has been working tirelessly to gift fans with transcendent music that’s full of replay value.
“Footup” is the second time that theworldbirdie has recruited Pope to be featured on one of his tracks, and both times the pair have concocted an addictive, dreamy song that wraps itself around the mind of the listener. Bridge Vision helped bring the video for “Footup” to life, and it does a great job at lifting the levels of fun and relaxation that are present within this song. An overall captivating release, both theworldbirdie and Pope should be extremely proud of the work they’ve put in.
Making his debut onto the Graduation Music site today is an artist going by the name theworldbirdie with the video for his latest single, “ARTx Intro”. Directed by former UMass Amherst student, Alexander Hagani, the pair joined forces to deliver us some exceptional visuals, which grasp both the meaning and the overarching feeling of the song tremendously well.
This music video was actually my very first taste of theworldbirdie’s music, and I’m thrilled to say that the Cape-native is yet another addition to the mixing pot of talented artists from Massachusetts. “ARTx Intro” has this sort of meditative, shimmering touch that has its roots set in theworldbirdie’s criss-crossing thoughts. He opens up about how his self-confidence flutters from left to right, how his past shapes his future, and how he’s on a seemingly never-ending journey towards solace. All of this is delivered over a smooth, melodic instrumental that’s perfect for this beautiful time of year. I’m only one song in, but theworldbirdie’s artistry is truly shining through with “ARTx Intro”.
I can’t commend Alex Hagani enough for his role in bringing theworldbirdie’s vision to life. The extremely talented pair aren’t finished here either, with another music video AND a 3-part interview series set to come out during the coming weeks. I’m ecstatic to see what their next move is going to be, as theworldbirdie is on a mission to prove to the world that he’s got what it takes to blossom as an artist.
