The Veiled Isle

Birdfeeder

Journey with us through a shrouded landscape knowable only through the shadows it casts.


On The Veiled Isle, the ocean is made of sand, the future is ancient, and your guides speak only in music....


The Veiled Isle is a live visual album from mystical Pōneke art-pop band, Birdfeeder. Working with performers Zoe Higgins and Pája Neuhöferová, Birdfeeder's music is animated through dazzling multi-layered shadow puppetry, light and object play.


The recorded companion EP, The Vile Isle, is out on digital streaming services everywhere on January 28. 


Don't miss this bewitching, spectacular and surreal performance!




 


Birdfeeder was formed in 2019 by long time friends and musical collaborators Stephanie Cairns (keys/vocals, lead songwriting), Josh Harris (drums) and Marley Mokomoko-Young (bass). Their music is characterised by unearthly melodies and vintage timbres, with lyrics spanning the personal, political and cosmic. They are gathering a reputation for catchy songwriting and a quirky visual aesthetic with their live shows and two self-produced music videos for Banana Boxes (2020) and The Long Haul (2021). The Veiled Isle was originally created in 2021 for Lōemis Festival.


Creative director and band leader Stephanie is a multi-instrumental musician and occasional puppeteer. Besides Birdfeeder she has played in Cotton Daisy Backstep, Gamelan Padhang Moncar, and Swamp Doctor (also with Josh Harris), and a number of theatre collaborations. Puppetry works include The Shadow Chateau (CubaDupa 2015/2016) and Fishy Fishy (NZ Fringe 2018).


Zoë Higgins is a poet, designer, theatre maker and ex-development worker who’s spent time living in half a dozen countries. Some shows she’s worked on include LOBSTERS (Best Ensemble Performance, NZ Theatre Awards 2017) and Committed (Parkin Development Prize, NZ Fringe Awards 2018). She also worked with Stephanie on
