Described as “(more) Daft Punk than Dorothy the Dinosaur” and taking “clear inspiration from 90’s Beck and old-school Beastie Boys”. With an emphasis on fun, upbeat party jams with titles such as “Gelati Party” and “Bounce to the Beat, ”Battlebird’s music lies somewhere between “Hot Potato and Hotline Bling”.
