Little Bird is Rainy Day Woman’s debut single with Pear O’ Legs records. It’s a lonely, searching song about migrating birds and feeling like the tide has left you somewhere you don’t want to be. Tattle O’Day, the B-side, is a surreal traditional children’s song, endlessly mysterious and deeply emotional. If Little Bird is about a mother longing for her child, Tattle voices a child turning to the magical to understand the strange world around them.
‘The equivalent of waking up from a wet and weary February to the sun dancing on the walls of your room’ Fem Folk UK
Little Bird on my washing line // Sing a song for that girl of mine. Written on a wet and woolly cliff walk in January 2020, Hannah was imagining a woman who, having fled somewhere unsafe - and after a journey of flimsy boats, violence and unspeakable loss - is now adjusting to a new life in a strange place.
“A genuine joy live, Rainy Day Woman’s music is bright, light and effortlessly gorgeous. Hannah and Gabriel pull off something magical every time... A real joy to watch, without fail” Folkroom Records, London
