The Bird and the Bee (aka Inara George and Greg Kurstin) are releasing a new covers album, Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen, that features covers of 10 songs (11 if you get the vinyl version) of the 1980s rock band. Now they have shared another track from the album, a cover of Van Halen's 1984 hit "Hot For Teacher." They have flipped the gender of the teacher and he is voiced by special guest Beck. More

Watch Beck Perform “Tarantula” on James Corden with Feist, Bat For Lashes, and Inara George

Music Inspired By the Film Roma Due Out February 8 via Sony Masterworks

Feb 05, 2019

Beck recently shared a new track, "Tarantula," which is a cover of a 1983 song by Colourbox (who were signed to 4AD), which was also covered by This Mortal Coil in 1986 (their version is likely more an influence on Beck's). Last night Beck stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform the song. He was joined by a backing choir that featured Feist and Alex Lilly (who both sing on the studio version of the song), alongside Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) and The Bird and the Bee's Inara George. But that's not all; he was also accompanied by the LA Philharmonic, conducted by Philharmonic music director Gustavo Dudamel. More

Inara George on Streaming Music, Being Fired, Childhood Memories, Star Wars, and Bad Dates

Feb 04, 2016

For Under the Radar's 13th annual Artist Survey we emailed some of our favorite artists a few questions relating to 2015. We asked them about their favorite albums of the year and their thoughts on various notable 2015 news stories involving either the music industry or world events, as well as some quirkier personal questions. Here are some answers from Inara George of The Bird and the Bee. The Los Angeles-based duo (which also features Greg Kurstin) released their latest album, Recreational Love, last summer via Rostrum/Polydor.

It's becoming increasingly obvious that Greg Kurstin, one half of The Bird and the Bee, has been blessed with the Midas touch for pop music; every singer the producer/songwriter comes in contact with (see: Sia, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Lily Allen, Tegan and Sarathe list is an embarrassment of riches) gets to witness his ability to craft hits for musicians across the spectrum.

The Bird and the Bee at the Echoplex, Los Angeles

Los Angeles is a great place to see many of your favorite bands. However, Los Angeles is also the worst place to see many of your favorite bands. Local duo The Bird and the Bee played a barter show for the Echoplex last week after they used the venue to shoot the video for their new single, the David Lee Roth tribute “Diamond Dave” there. Unfortunately, the venue’s charm was marred by a bunch of L.A. scenesters who couldn’t shut their loud mouths or look up from texting long enough to listen to a single note of the mellow band’s performance, even during a cappella moments.
