A REAL STATEMENT OF INTENT FROM THE SOUTH COAST FOUR-PIECE
Fast rising South coast indie rock upstarts FLOWVERS have shared their first new music of 2022 with the release of whirring new single ‘When It Comes To It’
A real statement of intent from the South Coast four-piece, ‘When It Comes To It’ is a buzzing blend of arena-ready riffs and commanding percussion. Showcasing an accomplished and considered sound way beyond their tender years, it’s a number that aches to be played at full volume and demands you to press play for yourself.
Speaking about the track FLOWVERS say, “’When It Comes To It’ was pondered from the time when we were still under some lockdown restrictions and had just started writing all together again. We’d noticed a change, not only externally from the band, but we had this feeling that Covid-19 had made us much more aware. This awareness manifested itself into this song, a social critique on anyone who wasn’t ready to slip under the door and run outside as soon as the lockdown was lifted.”
It follows on from previous singles ‘Flowers’ – a slow burner that builds up to an epic crescendo, weaving strands of indie, rock and post-punk to create a colossal four minutes much akin to the sound of Talking Heads meeting Kings Of Leon – and ‘Far Away’. A song that oozes with the same frenetic energy once present during the 2012 B-Town indie scene. The mammoth singles have been praised by Clash Magazine, Dork, Record Of The Day, Atwood Magazine and CLOUT to name but a few.
Managing to take lockdown in their stride, FLOWVERS blossomed throughout 2021, taking time to develop their sound, which has since presented them with some fruitful opportunities. Last year the Portsmouth band appeared on Scruff Of The Neck TV on Twitch – as part of a mammoth weekender celebrating new bands from up and down the country – and released of their Old Chapel Demos EP, which included an inclusion on the X-POSURE List on Radio X. They also played at the iconic Isle of Wight Festival, appearing on the This Feeling stage, sold out shows on a headline tour around the UK, appeared in the studio at talkSPORT Radio and had their music played on Soccer AM .
FLOWVERS’ growing hook-laden sound has seen them become regulars on BBC Introducing in the Solent as well as garnering support across the board on music blogs. They’ve amassed over one million streams on Spotify after featuring on their New Music Friday and Hot New Bands playlists, whilst live they have played shows with the likes of Swim Deep, JAWS, Black Honey, Another Sky and Coach Party.
And 2022 shows no signs of slowing down.
