DEBUT EP FOR 7TH APRIL RELEASE VIA DIRTY BINGO RECORDS
Night Flowers are set to release their self-titled debut EP via Dirty Bingo Records on 7th April, today they share lead track ‘Embers’ via Pitchfork.
The five-piece London-based band formed only a year ago, but are connected by their Humberside origins. They encompass the wistful sound of jangly eighties guitar pop and early nineties shoegaze, completed by the intertwining male/female vocals of siblings Greg and Hester Ullyart – you can almost imagine them soundtracking your favourite John Hughes movie. Since putting debut tracks ‘Single Beds’ and ‘North’ online they have been bubbling on the mouths of tastemaker blogs and their debut EP sets to prove them right.
Recorded with Adam Jaffrey at Unwound Studios this four track EP sees the band retaining the same nostalgia soaked melodic pop sensibilities they have been noted for, whilst simultaneously evolving their sound and delving into slightly more sombre, dream-like territories. Summer turns to autumn, turns to winter.
The self-titled EP will be available on transparent frosted 10” vinyl to celebrate the 10th release on the revered Dirty Bingo Records (Woman’s Hour, Drop Out Venus, SHINIES), as well as digital download.
They can next be seen live supporting Michael A Grammar at The Shacklewell Arms on 27 February and host a free entry EP launch at Dalston’s Victoria on 4 April.
NIGHT FLOWERS ARE: Chris Hardy (guitar and vocals), Sam Lenthall (bass), Zebedee Budworth (drums), Greg Ullyart (guitar and vocals) and Hester Ullyart (vocals).
PRAISE FOR NIGHT FLOWERS:
“’Single Beds’ is the sound of London adolescents fighting back. Landing with a hook that rivals many current C86 revivalists, [it] is far too bright and bookish for musical nostalgia or melancholy; rather, it’s is an indication of recapturing and reclaiming a movement they rightfully think as their own.’ – DIY
“Sounding like constituent members of The Cure (somewhere between ‘Just Like Heaven’ and ‘Friday I’m In Love’), Ride, Teenage Fanclub and Silversun Pickups all buddying up and rewriting the Drive soundtrack.’ – Killing Moon
“With a nu-wave heart and jangly indie guitar stirring in its soul, it is quite simply perfect indie-pop.” – When the Gramophone Rings
27 February – The Shacklewell Arms, London w/ Michael A Grammar
4 April – EP Launch Party @ The Victoria, Dalston, London – FREE
