“When You Lie” from Flowers first 7″ sounds like the band have a stash of Shop Assistants and Mary Chain records. It’s got big echoing drums, cool distant female vocals and noisy guitars that will have you thinking that they must be from Scotland. According to the internet the band reside in London and are on the fast track to indiepop fame and glory (whatever that may be). You can still order the trio’s debut single from Cloudberry. They have a single coming soon as part of Odd Box’s 100 series (which is sold out) and another one due out on Fortuna Pop’s singles club. Hopefully they won’t continue to make themselves obscure and release some more easily getable records in the very near future.
The band just played the NYC Popfest and have one more US date in Chicago at the Beat Kitchen on 12 June. If you are a resident of that midwest town consider attending, otherwise you can still order their Cloudberry single, or head over to their bandcamp page to download it for free.
