KEXP Presents: The Mynabirds

After the release of The Mynabirds' 2012 album Generals, principal songwriter Laura Burhenn accompanied The Postal Service on a world reunion tour — and then spent another year making The Mynabirds' latest album, Lovers Know, while zig-zagging all over the place.

Though spurred by heartbreak, Burhenn's new songs still convey hope. Here, she and her band visit the KEXP studio to perform "Wildfire" and other songs from Lovers Know.
