Melbourne via Perth duo Flower Drums share a taste of their forthcoming debut album Sunshine Terror Babies in the form of lush new single ‘Night Swims’.
Self-produced by Aden Senycia and Leigh Craft, mixed by Aden Senycia and mastered by Joe Carra, ‘Night Swims’ is about the impending anxiety and loss of comfort following their recent relocation and the daunting reality of “settling down”.
“The lyrics were a direct result of my situation at the time, I had recently moved from Perth to Melbourne with the intention of writing music and escaping a world that I had subsequently grown out of” – Leigh
Lifted from Flower Drums’ debut album Sunshine Terror Babies, ‘Night Swims’ follows up the brooding ‘Back To Earth‘ feat. Ash Hendriks released early last year, which saw support from triple j, Unearthed and RTR.
Due for release February 12, Sunshine Terror Babies focusses on the fragility and idiosyncrasies of growing up in contemporary society, from the isolation of your bedroom to the seemingly endless late night wanderings that are constantly asked, but offer no answers.
Flowers Drums will launch the album with two hometown shows in Melbourne and Perth and will reveal new merch including Sunshine Terror Babies on 12” vinyl.
