"Within this massive sound collage are some incredibly beautiful and subtle melodies. If you allow yourself to be drawn into this dense and intricate universe you will be paid back ten-fold. Recommended without reserve." -Information, Denmark, Aug 2010

Admiral Byrd is an experimental writing/recording project based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Todd Casper, Jacob Kofler, Al Fleming and Thomas Cranley are ex-pat musicians, formerly of the Great Depression and Arman.
Multi-instrumentalists all, they write, record and produce the material at their own Highwire Studio, which is generally very dark - best idea wins.
Todd Casper writes the lyrics and arranges the voices, of which there are many.
Somehow, all of the tracks on their their debut album, Goodbye Cruel Worldview, became stories of broken down structures and the need to leave faulty systems behind.
