The beatific dream-pop trio Flowers announce their March UK tour with the release of the brilliant single ‘Forget The Fall’
aken from last year’s Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do album Forget The Fall is Flowers in miniature. Sharing a kinship with The Softies, the melodies are effortlessly gorgeous, possessed of the sense of joy that slept in the songwriting of Tiger Trap but, like Tallulah Gosh, not ignorant of the sadness that exists in beauty. That beauty makes itself known in the voice of Rachel Kenedy. Nestled between the warmth of Hope Sandoval and the chill of Harriet Wheeler, it’s so welcoming that it wraps itself around you and lets you know that everything will be fine.
With Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do having been released to no little acclaim last autumn, Flowers play a fine hand by releasing the LPs finest song as a single. Forget The Fall will serve to remind fans just how fine a band Flowers are, while being a track that dream-pop fans who’ve yet to hear the band can treat as a newly discovered treasure.
Verdict: Graceful pop that will delight fans old and new
