Perth’s electronica and dream-pop act Flower Drums, are leaving the west for some interstate shows in support of their brand new EP 28 Mansions, out now.
Having landed a slot on the 2014 Laneway Festival, a WAM nomination and a tour across the US, the percussive petals have slowed their sound in the latest track for an intimate but expansive feel.
Latest single from the EP ‘End II End’ follows on from the previously released ‘Bad Websites’ and ‘Don’t Wait’ ft. St. South, and was not always supposed be their stripped back counterpart.
‘‘End II End’ was originally written with the intention to create something heavier than the generally smooth Flower Drums sound. The initial track, written and recorded in two nights, was filled with tom heavy jungle beats, but after several mixes we decided to do a complete rework of the track and approach it as though we were doing a future soul / remix and the result just felt right”.
Flower Drums launch 28 Mansions on the following dates:
April 30th at Abbotsford Convent (Shadow Electric) – Melbourne (18+ only)
May 6th at Beach Road Hotel – Sydney (18+ only)
May 9th at Oxford Art Factory – Sydney (18+ only)
May 15th at The Bird – Perth (18+ only)
