Geography Of The Moon. Fake Flowers Never Die. These monikers alone invoke all of the sounds that play out through this slow release album. Playfully sombre with a wry new wave smile, smoked half-lit melodies just off optimistic. Take a trip through its warm post-punk lullaby textures and rest up in its sub-goth pop sonics. As we join up the dots between the ethereal 80’s, dark-twee 90’s indie, and their 2000’s revivalists War Paint and Frankie Rose (to mention just a selection), it’s hard not to soak up the nostalgia. There’s what sounds like a love for the songs as they’re crafted and a patience for stripped down delivery. Looped clean guitars and minimalist pulses, honeyed vocals that flow, ebb and float, touches of folk psychedelic… It’s a full blown concoction with an easy dirt-free lo-fi glaze. Between A-side highlights and a B-side that flies by, Fake Flowers Never Die is an intriguing slice of deceptively slick new wave indie.
