Since their formation back in 2012, London, UK-based noise pop trio Flowers received national and international attention with the release of their debut effort. Everybody’s Dying to Meet You, the trio’s latest album was released through Kanine Records/Fortuna POP! Records earlier this year, and the effort is reportedly fuzzier while retaining the gorgeously ethereal quality that first captured the attention of the blogosphere; in fact, the trio’s latest single “Intrusive Thoughts” has the band pairing Rachel Kenedy’s gorgeous and ethereal vocals with buzzing power chords, propulsive drumming and an anthemic hook in a moodily introspective and deeply personal song that sounds as though the trio sonically drew from shoegaze and PJ Harvey.
Produced by Finnigan Kidd, the recently released music video for “Intrusive Thoughts” employs the use of subtly blue-tinged black and white footage of the band performing the song with some slick and moody superimposed footage of the band’s individual members. Although it’s a simple concept, it accurately captures the moodiness within the song.
