Birds Way are a band from Russia that plays nordwave folk and this is a review of their self titled 2015 ep which was released by Casus Belli Musica.
A very dark and atmospheric synth sound starts off the ep and also brings in a variety of many different sounding keys which also gives the music more of an epic feeling and when vocals are added they are clean singing female vocals which also takes the tracks into more of a folk music direction which they mix in with ambient.
When folk instruments are utilized they give the songs more of a tribal feeling and as the ep progresses pagan style chanting can be heard at times along with the sounds of nature and the second track also brings in male vocals which also gives the song more of a medeival atmosphere along with some symphonic elements and the last track brings in jews harp's.
Birds Way creates a musical style that takes pagan folk and dark ambient and mixes them together to create a style called nordfolk, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Paganism and nature themes.
In my opinion Birds Way are a very great sounding neo-folk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Distant Shore'. 8 out of 10.
