Night Water • I've Been Away • 2019



Night Water is the music of Travis Bird of New Orleans, an omnivorous guitarist and writer of songs exploring meaning, identity, and musical energy and movement. Night Water evokes the solitude and mystery present in its familiar words: inviting, foreboding, filled with the possibility of shimmering insight in the dark. Influenced by touchstones of rock, folk, vintage pop, and tropicalia, Night Water also takes inspiration (and its name) from underground Soviet minimalist poetry. Bird’s longtime work as a projectionist and experimental film curator inspire his perspectives on texture and tonal color, as Night Water explores the hidden worlds present in concise, self-driven art.
