Dana Louise Idlet teamed up with Keith, Ezra, and Adams Collins of Arkansauce to form the Glorious Birds. They released their self-titled CD and vinyl album on Trout Records in 2015. Fronting the band are Dana Louise on guitar and vocals and Adams Collins on vibraphone and 5-string banjo. The rhythm section is made up of Keith on bass and Ezra Idlet on drums.
The music is a blend of indie folk and jazz – alternately melodious and hard-driving – and often unexpected with its unusual mix of instruments and influences.
