Night Flowers announce new single, Glow In The Dark
Having just completed tours in Germany and Japan to great acclaim, transatlantic indie-pop quintet Night Flowers announce new single, ‘Glow in the Dark’, due out on Dirty Bingo Records on 15 July. The single will be available on a limited run of 300 glow in the dark 7" vinyl (with free patch and bonus tracks), and digitally.
The band have also unveiled the new video for 'Glow In The Dark', which you can watch below. The video was shot during their recent Japanese tour by friend, photographer and film maker Darren Topliss. The video was primarily shot in three continuous takes at 3am in Tokyo's bustling Shibuya district.
The band say, "The video intends to capture Tokyo as a living, breathing and sleepless organism, and induce a feeling of jetlagged, punchdrunk euphoria, capturing the alien but beautiful environment and state of mind we found ourselves submerged in." The result is a hazy, vibrant waking Tokyo dream. The song itself reflects on themes of distance and time, and the close bonds that are affected by neither.
It has been a whirlwind couple of years for Night Flowers since these close friends from North England collided with Boston, Massachusetts born vocalist Sophia Pettit in London and began forming their irresistible brand of heart stirring, romantic pop.
A joyous combination of intertwining female/male vocals backed by glistening guitars and dreamlike atmospherics has seen them amass friends, fans and accolades across the world.
With their debut s/t EP selling out fast, last year saw a Japanese special EP and 2 track single ‘Sleep’ released in quick succession, gaining international acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, NME, DIY and The Line Of Best Fit whilst enjoying repeat airplay and praise from Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6music show, with Radcliffe and Maconie, Huw Stephens and John Kennedy all giving their on-air seal of approval.
Reaching out extensively across the UK, the band have honed an incendiary live show, gathering a loyal and solid fanbase in the process. They have appeared at Bestival, Kendal Calling, Beacons,Tramlines and Indietracks as well as Spanish festivals Lemonpop and Madrid Popfest, sharing stages with such bands as Swervedriver, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Frankie & The Heartstrings amongst countless others. They are currently working on their debut album.
