Stopping You in Your Trax: Mimicking Birds “Burning Stars”

A pretty unknown band named Mimicking Birds is now opening for Modest Mouse during their US tour.  Check out their single, “Burning Stars.” Picking up speed around the 40 second mark, it also gives us a tinge of a Bon Iver influence…

So, this eve’n it seems we have settled down
Quite a bit from the energy we once had
Oh, believe me, we’ve settled down
Way down, way down, way down.

Oh, the time it takes til you’ve had enough
Has shortened even in the last couple of years
So too have the years themselves
Themselves, themselves, the years themselves

And all we are, is burning stars
Shining brightly making sure you dont float too far
I’ll keep an eye on you if you keep one on me
And then what happens we’ll see
And then what happens we’ll see
