The Pink Flowers

Hazy waves of guitar drifts around the room as The Pink Flowers take the audience on journey of fuzzy reverb. Percussion switches between moments of quiet imperceptibility to geeing up the tracks like a jockey pushing a horse towards the finishing post as a melted vocal floats ethereally in the distance.


Newly out of the blocks The Pink Flowers only have a few songs I have had the opportunity to hear, the most recent of which they have packaged as a three track single – Joy, which I immediately put into a loop as inside the laid-back out-put lay a spread of ideas which can be caught and investigated further on repeated play.

They have laid out the ground-work for their career in the music industry, with both recorded material appearing and it looks as though live performances are about to commence. Of most importance the music they are producing holds the attention and demands a replay.

I certainly look forward to hearing more in short order and wish them well.
