Beluga Baby could’ve easily been another version of 24/7/365: the bossa nova imprint, sun-soaked guitar chords, dance-of-love lyrics. Keyword: “Could’ve.” Where Surfaces kept their foot on the gas and let their eyes close to lo-fi, dozed-off chill, BAIRD loses himself in the motion: the heart flutters of syncopation, the psychedelic daydreams of Toro y Moi-esque distortion, the synergy of guitar and voice, branching out and braiding together. No SoCal sunset on the horizon, no beach destination in mind; just one wish: “If I could roll with you.” Be ready to dance to the rest of the EP when BIRDSONGS Vol. 2 releases on 10/20.
