Track Of The Day :: Flower Drums - Back To Earth (ft. Ash Hendriks)
Words: Linn Branson
After their 2015 debut EP '28 Mansions' and collab with St. South on the track ‘Don’t Wait’, Melbourne's (via Perth) Flower Drums haven't put too much out on record, but this fantastic new track is a sign not just of how good they are still sounding, bit also of what might be ahead on the album they are currently working on.
'Back To Earth', which features Ash Hendriks - aka Leure, the Sydney singer-songwriter first featured by Little Indie back in 2014 here - on vocals, is stunning. Hendriks manages to make the track compelling with her spine-tingling voice that is laid sumptuously over the dreampop electronica deep bassline, synths and samples employed by the four band members that sounds not too far removed from the style of the UK's own Haelos. Undoubtedly a track to press play on more than once.
Flower Drums play their last gig for awhile on February 8 supporting I Know Leopard at The Gasometer in Melbourne.
