“The Seven and I ride in the moonlight. The motorway’s empty, and it feels right.”
So sings Night Flowers’ Sophia Pettit on the opening line to ‘Fortune Teller’, the title track from the London Indie quintet’s new album, due 25th October via Dirty Bingo Records.
It’s an unapologetically dramatic lyric, symbolic of a record which serves as a love letter to the rock giants of the 20th Century, abound with widescreen tales of haunted lovers, broken dreams, neon desire, heartbreak and rebirth, all played out on nocturnal streets and moonlit motorways.
Here, Night Flowers offer a knowing, modern take on a classic rock sound. Channeling 70’s and 80’s influences, they delve across the pond and deeper into the past for inspiration than ever before, filtering it through the Dream-Pop lens that their name has become synonymous with. The result is an emotional pop record that dreams big and is not afraid to put the band’s melodic hooks and romanticism front and centre.
