Myspace watch - The Black Flowers
Pounding their way through Sheffield's wilderness comes a dark shade of something beautiful.
After a couple of successful performances at Sheffield's Tramlines festival and a stint in London, what comes next could be quite exciting for the Black Flowers.
The ferocious drums in 'Play With Me, Play With Fire' sit with understated vocals and ringing guitars to set a scene of suspense and mystery that they don't answer to as vocalist Ben Stanton croons: "Play with me, play with fire, I can be your one desire," before: "Let me a paint you a picture, of a dream that I had, you weren't there in the debt of redemption."
Having found a favoured recording spot at the Steel City's 2 Fly Studios with the much revered Alan Smythe, this is band that are not searching for a sound, they found it long ago, and what they found is good.
