The Mynabirds – Disarm

Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn and company make The Mynabirds. This is what you want from female-front indie pop: instrumentals that aren’t cliche, a sweet voice that can be as sad as it can be quirky, and (most importantly) control over “cutesy” elements put into it. The result is some good, unapologetic indie pop that isn’t afraid to tell the listener that females can be sweet and badass at the same time. Check out the track “Disarm” off their 2012 album Generals below.
