Flower Drums return fortuitously with their brand new track 'IDLE TIME'. Giving the listeners a taste of their new sound, yet continuing to create that nocturnal nostalgia they're known for.
Recently removed from Perth, Flower Drums have found ground in Melbourne this year for their re-emergence after an extended period in Berlin to reinvigorate their sound.
The dream-pop outfit has made a name for themselves having played support slots with the likes of #1 Dads, Jungle Giants, Panama and Client Liason. Winning a spot to play St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival in 2014, Flower Drums picked up a nomination that year for ‘BEST POP ACT’ at the WAM awards.
Their 2015 debut EP 28 Mansions saw the band flourish on radio airwaves with their track ‘Don’t Wait’ featuring St. South and released a cinematically pleasing video for their lead single ‘End II End’. They’ve toured the USA and Australia, with their live show enveloping the audiences into an amalgamation of emotions and actuality. Abstract visuals compliment the live set into a complete experience for those within the space.
“Idle Time is about the reliance on social interactions during a period of transition and displacement. Musically we wanted to create something that moved with the pace of a city, like a restrained urgency.” says singer Leigh Craft.
