Birdz Releases New Single Ahead Of Forthcoming EP “Place Of Dreams” Feat. Ecca Vandal

Bad Apples Music signee Birdz is proud to share his new single “Place of Dreams” feat. Ecca Vandal, taken from his forthcoming EP of the same name. The release arrives ahead of a huge year for Bad Apples Music, announcing their partnership with Universal Music Australia to offer a platform for excellence for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.
BIRDZ - PLACE OF DREAMS.jpg
Balancing moments of delicate keys between formidable beats, the track tells a tale of limitations laid down by others and ultimately having the strength to believe in oneself. Leading with the explosive vocal prowess of Ecca Vandal, the single flows with production by Trials, and the raw rap that has cemented Birdz’ status as one of the country’s most exciting hip-hop acts today. Always formed by his heritage, the track evokes a compelling story told through both lyrics and organic composition.

Birdz says of “Place of Dreams”: The song really touches on the concept of a glass ceiling and the limitations people try put on you, especially where I come from and if you’re Indigenous… Ultimately, Place Of Dreams is about believing in yourself, having the strength to break through the bullshit and continue paving your own path.

Born & raised in the Northern Territory and now based in Melbourne, Birdz has seen accolades galore following the release of his debut record in 2017, Train of Thought. Combined with a compelling Like a Version performance, the young emcee was launched into the national spotlight through support from community radio, triple j and triple j unearthed for his honest words and raw perspective on prolific social issues. The debut record awarded Best Independent Hip Hop Album at the 2018 AIR Awards, included singles “This Side” feat. Serina Pech, “Rise” feat. Jimblah, and the politically charged “Black Lives Matter”, which collectively hold over 600k streams on Spotify.

The groundbreaking artist’s burgeoning popularity has also seen him take the stage with the likes of Briggs, Sampa The Great, Loyle Carner, The Funkoars, and Thundamentals, while also igniting crowds across Woodford, Sprung Festival, The Hills Are Alive, St Kilda Festival, Groovin the Moo and this year’s Bad Apples showcase at Melbourne’s CHANGES Music Industry Summit.

This first taste of Birdz’s forthcoming EP is set to lead the way for many new releases on the horizon from Bad Apples. A commanding message delivered with fervent passion, the first bite with “Place of Dreams” will leave you craving more.

NEW MUSIC // BIRDZ & OMAR MUSA – ABOUT ME




BAD APPLES MUSIC, this week released a firing collab from BIRDZ and OMAR MUSA – “ABOUT ME”; a track dedicated to those people who have a misrepresented view about their ‘Straya.

BIRDZ opens the track shooting scathing blows to those Australians who are suffering from a serious case of denial; denial of Australia’s history of genocide, obnoxiously boasting that Indigenous people should just ‘get over it’. OMAR MUSA follows closely dealing with the trolls (*looking at you Mark Latham) who are angry about him speaking out about how he feels, while touching on how “the right eat everyone else’s kids, while the left eat their own”.

We are so quick to tear ourselves apart instead of building alliances, while the real powers that be continue on and its politics as usual.” – OMAR MUSA

The inspiration behind the hookeverybody wanna talk about me” is the tired and typical scenario of they know us better than we know ourselves bullshit. My verse is a strong Black middle finger to that.” – BIRDZ

Download / Stream the track: https://misterbirdz.bandcamp.com/track/about-me

The two artists are hitting the road this month on the Voodoo Laksa Tour to perform their potent, political, poetic music around the country. Birdz will be performing from his critically acclaimed album Train of Thought” while rapper/poet/author Omar Musa will be bringing to life his latest album “Since Ali Died”.

The Voodoo Laksa Tour will be hitting Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Darwin. There couldn’t be a better time for fresh music that makes you dance AND think.

NEW VIDEO // BIRDZ ‘THIS SIDE’




On a dismal Melbourne day BIRDZ and his crew brought some serious game to the streets of Melbourne’s north side with his powerful new video clip for ‘THIS SIDE’.

Featuring cameos from Bad Apples boss man BRIGGS and stable mate NOOKY and the most important of all his one year old son. The clip inspires excellence no matter the adversity. Set amongst the iconic Richmond commission flats and industrial streets of the Melbourne music mecca Fitzroy, the clip is a challenge; a challenge to rise up against the odds, bring your A game and know you can achieve what you set your mind too. Katherine singer Serina Pech who features on the record brings home the message with her soulful chorus “Ain’t nobody gonna get in my way, rise and shine it’s a brand new day, we going up on this side, we going up on this side’ .

THIS SIDE is the MC’s testament to the integrity of Bad Apples Music and the key driver of the record label and the signed artists – Black Excellence.

“This Side is about letting people know where I’m at as an artist. Being a part the Bad Apples family and movement is something that I’m extremely proud of and I really wanted a dope visual that represented that feeling and showcased Black Excellence” BIRDZ

NEW MUSIC // BIRDZ – THIS SIDE




BIRDZ drops single ‘THIS SIDE featuring SERINA PECH’

BIRDZ has spoken to Australia’s heart with his singles ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Rise’, discussing the hardships and discrimination that Australia’s Indigenous community experience.

With legions of fans rising up, BIRDZ is ready to launch his debut album, ‘TRAIN OF THOUGHT’ with lead single, ‘THIS SIDE’. It’s an upbeat, shoulder rolling, groover! All attitude and statement of intent. It’s an anthem for world domination by the man who’s not afraid to go for it and ruffle some feathers if he has to, dissing the haters.

THIS SIDE is the MC’s testament to the integrity of Bad Apples Music and the key driver of the record label and the signed artists – Black Excellence. BIRDZ teamed up with fellow Katherine (NT) singer songwriter Serina Pech who joins his melodic rhymes with smooth singalong chorus.

“It’s a celebration of the Bad Apples Music movement and our presence in Australia’s music industry – planting the flag so to speak and letting everyone know that we’re here to stay.” – BIRDZ

BIRDZ is one of the country’s most exciting hip-hop acts on the rise, already having performed at St Kilda Festival, The Hills Are Alive and Groovin The Moo, after supporting A.B. ORIGINAL, THE FUNKOARS, THUNDAMENTALS & SAMPA THE GREAT in 2016. The Butchulla emcee is solidifying himself as the country’s most exciting hip-hop act to emerge from the scene.

Birdz debut album ‘Train of Thought’ is set for release in August 2017 through Bad Apples Music.
