More than seventy Birds of Tokyo songs have featured on Triple J, making them one of the station’s three most played artists of this millennium. The band are also the only artist in history to win “Rock Work Of The Year” on five separate occasions at the prestigious APRA Awards.
In the last two years the band has enjoyed a run of four hit singles. This new material shares a strong lyrical thread because it was all largely inspired by a tumultuous period in the personal life of frontman Ian Kenny. He dealt with his marriage breakup directly in the radio smash “The Greatest Mistakes” plus the double platinum certified single “Good Lord”. The anthemic “Unbreakable” provided a different perspective on the same dire situation while this year’s celebratory “Two Of Us” ushered in the next chapter of his story. In May 2020 Birds of Tokyo bundled all these songs plus seven more onto a new album called Human Design, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart.
