The Italian dark-electro-rock band Black Flowers Cafe were introduced back in April.
A dropping of the accent on the è in Cafè to cafe – other than that the recognisable pivots around bass remains extant as Black Flower Cafe resurface with a new track set for release on the 2nd of December – Minikata ii (available on bandcamp).
A molten song that moulds itself around the auricula as though of bespoke tailoring. The tempting double time percussion vacillates in introduction and quickly the listener is drawn into the luxurious heart melting synths which are given space to inspect the landscape, prior to the anchoring bass and elasticised guitar welding the combinations to a pristine fit. The vocal entrancingly adds the cream topping in the three and three quarter minute munificence of Mintaka ii.
Once again Black Flowers Cafe are able to provide the mind with music in which to dissolve.
The only sadness, for me as an English speaker, is that the band name now seems discordant, from the stretching Cafè to the truncated pronunciation Caff, which takes away the elegance that underlies the music.
