Silverchair Week: Those Thieving Birds Part 1 / Strange Behaviour / Those Thieving Birds Part 2
The band is in the midst of a sold out tour Down Under (they'll be back Stateside in Nov) and we asked frontman Daniel Johns to pick some of his favorite tracks from the new album and tell us a little bit about them. Here he is with today's song "Those Thieving Birds Part 1 / Strange Behaviour / Those Thieving Birds Part 2."
I wrote this on a rainy day in Windsor, England, and never expected it to be so long. The construction of the song was not as 'considered' as it might sound. Musically it took about 2 or 3 days to write, and a lot of the lyrics were made up on the spot whilst recording demos of the song. The hard thing about this song was trying to include all the ideas and still make it appear simple. I think we achieved it. - Preview tracks from the CD, get tour dates and more here
