Dangerbird preps digital debut Hello Anxiety from Australia's Guineafowl

On October 4th, Dangerbird will issue the digital release of Hello Anxiety, the debut EP from Australian electronic-rock group, Guineafowl.

The 5-song Hello Anxiety EP began to take shape in an apartment above an antique store near Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. The songs are a translation of Guineafowl’s life stories; a scrapbook collection of of fuck-ups, frustrations and elation.

To commemorate the digital release, Guineafowl will tour the USA this fall with appearances at Filter’s Culture Collide Festival in Los Angeles, and the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City.

Listen to “Little Fingers” by Guineafowl on SoundCloud.
