About the EP
>Covered in Darkness is our tribute to some of the bands and songs that made us discover new aspects of music and thus have influenced the sound of Netherbird. We have intentionally chosen to cover tunes that sound a little (and some even more) different from Netherbird and the music we do. The reason is simple; if we would have covered something akin to our own sound we would only make a copy and we prefer to create something new, to try some new angle and perhaps also make more people discover some songs they might have otherwise missed out on. Take these recodings for what they are: music.
We hope you will enjoy them, and that they also serves to let you in on the broad spectra of sounds that make up Netherbird. Our influences go deep, and they go broad.
