The Flowers Band from Gloucester are in their 46th year. Oh no, that’s the wrong one. This Flowers isn’t an ancient brass band, but a trio of indiepop perfection. The fourteen tracks on debut album are like brief catchy morsels planted into a youthful time capsule, frantic and feverish in energy and sentiment. They flirt with fuzzpop shimmer on first single Joanna, explicit reveal the pain of love on Drag Me Down, start soothingly stripped back on opener Young, and wear the influence of producer Bernard Butler most evidently in the teasingly sensuous I Love You. Comprising the best of bedroom creation with inventive melodies and intense performance, this is a sweet, wholesome and very Fortuna record.
