New Music: The Cookie Jar Complot – Birds Are A Lie

Luxembourg-based math rock act The Cookie Jar Complot has been making regular appearances on this blog since Jane discovered them for us at the beginning of last year. We both can’t get enough of their sound, which combines epic instrumentals with tongue-in-cheek concepts. Their latest is called Birds Are A Lie.

The Cookie Jar Complot are Sven Schmeler and Gilles Glesener. Their latest plays on themes of conspiracy and paranoia delivering a tense but euphoric composition that’s rich with looping electric guitar, rumbling bass and enough surprises to have you questioning everything.

With Birds Are A Lie, The Cookie Jar Complot continue to deliver on their promise of pulsating, toe-tapping instrumental rock. This just might be their best one yet. You can give the track a listen below.
