Park Acoustics: An Interview with The World of Birds

The World of Birds are one of the acts who will be jamming at Park Acoustics this coming weekend. I had a chat to them about this and a few other things.

So far it has been a busy year for you guys. What has been some stand out memories?

Releasing music, playing shows & seeing new places is always memorable for us as a band – even though that life style seems fast paced – those are the memories that seem to stick for us.

The World of Birds

This is your first Park Acoustics as The World of Birds. How stoked are you to debut your “new” project back at the Voortrekker Monument?

Performing at Park Acoustics has always been on our to do list since we assembled the band, so we are super chuffed to be a part of the line up this year.

The World of Birds has played quite a few sets in Pretoria since inception. But for those of us (oops) who still hasn’t seen you guys live yet, what can we expect at Park Acoustics?

We always try to create a fun & energetic atmosphere for those in the crowd. You can expect to dance & enjoy yourself to some new & old music from us

Some of us thrive on nostalgia. Do you still sometimes through in an Al Bairre song? (please say yes)

We love nostalgia – so yes, you can expect an Al Bairre song or two from us (maybe)

What does the rest of 2019 hold for The World of Birds?

The rest of 2019 is looking sharp for us – We are releasing a bunch of new music (that we are very happy with). We are booked up with national shows all the way up until December & we will be visiting Europe in September to play some festivals too.

Where would you like to see The World of Birds in five years’ time?

Living in mansion, driving fast cars & drinking expensive champagne.

I’d like to thank The World of Birds for this interview and I wish them all of the best with this weekend’s show and their future musical endeavors. If you don’t have tickets for Park Acoustics yet, get them HERE.
