Fortuna POP! are excited to announce that they have signed Flowers, a brilliant new three piece from London. Despite only having formed in April this year they have already toured Europe with The Pains Of Being Pure Of Heart and recorded with Stuart Moxham of Young Marble Giants. Fittingly, Flowers draw a line between the joyous fuzzpop of the Pains and the minimalist brilliance of Young Marble Giants – with singer Rachel playing bass guitar with just a single string.
The trio comprises of Sam (guitar), Jordan (drums) and Rachel (bass, vocals). Together they create a wall of sound larger than the sum of their parts, catchy pop songs hidden in noise. And Rachel possesses one of those beautiful pop voices to die for, with echos of Elizabeth Fraser and Hope Sandoval. The reception at the few gigs they have played to date has been nothing less than rapturous.
Following singles on Cloudberry and Odd Box Records, a full-length album is scheduled for release soon on Fortuna POP!
