‘Birds In an Aviary’ was inspired lyrically by the line in the Tennessee Williams’ play ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ where Maggie says to Brick
"I’m not living with you, we just occupy the same cage." La Forme’s vocalist and lyricist Chris explains: "I have always loved that line,
it’s just so wonderfully blunt and sad, I just took that metaphor and stretched it. Birds is about a relationship breaking down with birds as the
protagonists. One of my favourite things to do lyrically is to take the idea of a love song and then frame it slightly differently, because love
is such a strange emotion."
La Form’s darkly alluring slice of intelligent synth pop has a quintessential European outlook. The sound is simultaneously futuristic whilst
still possessing the warmth and comfort of an age where pop ran supreme. ‘Birds In an Aviary’ is a new beginning for the band in many ways
that is ambitious and poetically direct. Think Morrissey suavely wondering into the grooves of New Orders ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ with
Arthur Russell producing it all in some Brooklyn dive studio in 1983!
