The London, UK-based trio of Flowers, which consists of Rachel Kennedy (vocals). Sam Ayers (guitar) and Jordan Hockley (drums) played their first live set last September, and within a few months they were opening for the likes of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and others. And as a result the band has built up a following in the same scene that fostered bands like Veronica Falls.
In January, the band released their debut, the home-recorded 7" for “When You Lie” which was released through Cloudberry Records. The band is now making the four songs from that 7" available digitally and it coincides with the band’s Stateside debut, June 1st at the Bell House for the New York City PopFest.
The track is a distorted, buzzing pop song which shows elements of the Raveonettes and A Place to Bury Strangers, if they were inspired by 60s girl-led pop groups. In other words, it still maintains a sweetness at it’s center.
