Recent Release: ‘Far Away’ by Flowvers
UK South Coast quartet, Flowvers, launched their stratospheric indie anthem ‘Far Away’ back in early August. A meteoric cut that oozes with the same frenetic energy once present during the 2012 B-Town indie scene, Far Away is a mammoth number from the get-go, with infectious riffs and primal percussion.
‘Far Away was written over the last two years. The initial hook was what Stan used to play when warming up in rehearsals and it morphed into the intro and then it was plain sailing from there.”– Flowvers
It follows on from the Portsmouth band’s recent appearance on Scruff Of The Neck TV on Twitch – as part of a gigantic weekender celebrating new bands from up and down the country – and the release of their Old Chapel Demos EP, which included key single ‘When It Comes To It’ being added to the X-POSURE List on Radio X.
“We jammed it and it became more and more apparent that when we came to record it would need a big sound. The lyrics talk about angst, a recurrent theme in our songs. Lines like ‘Take me so far away’ captured the feeling of a lockdown where one may have felt like they had nowhere to go. We hope everyone enjoys the song.”– Flowvers
Their growing hook-laden sound has seen them become regulars on BBC Introducing in the Solent as well as garnering support across the board on music blogs. They’ve amassed over one million streams on Spotify after featuring on their New Music Friday and Hot New Bands playlists, whilst live they have played shows with the likes of Swim Deep, JAWS, Black Honey, Another Sky, and Coach Party.
With plenty more of this in their locker, the feeling that this four-piece are onto something big is palpable.
