RELEASE COVER OF DANIEL JOHNSTON’S
‘TRUE LOVE WILL FIND YOU IN THE END’
LIVE AT THE BOOKHOUSE, LONDON
DEBUT ALBUM ‘…AND THEN THE RAIN STOPPED’
OUT MARCH 27TH 2020
Birthmarks share their cover of ‘True Love Will Find You In The End’ by critically acclaimed visual artist and singer-songwriter, Daniel Johnston, recorded live at The Bookhouse, London.
“Daniel Johnston was one of my biggest influences as a songwriter and the sad news of his passing will leave a black cloud over this year. As with many people my age, I was first introduced to him through the medium of a t-shirt. Not a typical introduction, but he was not a typical artist. Johnston was innovative, beautiful and sincere. True Love Will Find You In The End is a masterpiece, the lyrics are a true journey that is optimistic, sober, comforting and painfully honest.
We wanted to capture the song live to emulate Johnston’s recording technique and vulnerability, though I’d imagine with his instinctual playing he would have had it down a lot faster than us. His music has become a friend over the years and I’m forever grateful for the door that he left open to such a delicate world.” – Daniel Cross

‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’ is co-produced by the band’s vocalist Daniel Cross andengineer/collaborator Lorenzo De Feo. The album was recorded at The Garage Studios, Hertfordshire and mastered by John Davies (Gorillaz, Joy Division, Savages) at Metropolis Studios. Dark, seductive, treacherous and clever, ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’ is a masterful collection of tales themed around time, sex and obsession with a hefty dose of loss, regret and abandon, perfectly soundtracked by Birthmarks’ unique genre-bending take on discord and electronica.
The writing for the album coincided with the breakdown of an 8-year relationship, with Cross re-writing the majority of his lyrics and continually editing right up until the day he recorded vocals for the record. The brazenly personal lyrical content of the album draws you in deeper, with the album linked by common themes rather than a song by song basis.
Birthmarks are a London based rock band born from the ashes of their earlier moniker Little Death Machine, fusing elements of electronica, trip-hop and rock with an introspective take on songwriting, experimentation and production. The album is full of powerfully emotive songs that are delivered with raw, unapologetic honesty and paint a captivating landscape of the human condition.
Be sure to catch Birthmarks live.
