As their moniker suggests, the bird and the bee tackles the act of coupling — and its emotional repercussions. Angelic-voiced singer Inara George (daughter of late Little Feat frontman Lowell George) and multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin create space-age pop that cunningly combines bossa nova languidity with Beach Boys-style lushness. The sugary melodies are balanced by the tart lyrics, where George pecks at manipulative dudes (”F—ing Boyfriend”) and ruminates about failed flings (”I’m a Broken Heart”).
