    Alright, I'm not as beloved as @sophos34 but I'm pulling a page from his book to promote our new album.

    In the meantime, you can stream our first EP, Hypnausea, on all major streaming services and Bandcamp (also produced by sophos). Thanks for stopping by, listening, and feel free to AMA

    I'll check out the ep when I get to my room later. With a name like Flower Crown, it's only fitting the band play a show at City Grows.

    Thanks! Let me know what you think. The name is kind of tongue-in-cheek and came from our annual Coachella party last year.

    We're primarily a dream-pop band with varying influences, shoegaze and jangle-pop mostly. The new songs have some pretty strong chillwave vibes.

    Seeing as I left it out of the first post, RIYL: Beach Fossils, DIIV, Real Estate
     
  4. Little update for y'all, I laid down keys on like eight tracks in Pittsburgh a few weeks back and vocals on one, but since then, we've written like three more songs. So I'm currently working on parts for those and after a little more work, we're hoping to have a single or something out in August to coincide with Barlow's release show (check out that band/thread) and have the album out sometime this Fall.

    @CoffeeEyes17 in case you want to keep up ;-)

  8. Thanks! The album is definitely a little different. We're striving for hooks, but I actually think it's a lot prettier and more atmospheric for the most part. I can't wait to announce the title, artwork, tracklist etc.

  9. My tracks on this record are straight-up pop joints and idk if that's a good thing or not, but I guess we'll find out. Also we got the beautiful @sophos34 mastering again so at least it'll sound great

    Updated the artwork, tracklist and release date in the OP. Official announcement/single/physical preorders via Flowerpot Records coming the first week of October, maybe sooner. @sophos34 is on the case

    shoutout to @nohandstoholdonto for trading album mixes with me and taking the time to listen and relay some very kind words and thoughts

    love the dreaminess of this, i played it a few times and it washes over you but not in a way that is sleepy or unpleasant. well done for sure!

  19. Thank youuu :heart: we chose to release this one because it's the opening track and best bridge between the sound of the EP and the full-length. Both the opening and closings tracks kind of plod along, but the songs in between are poppier and more upbeat.
     
  20. just got our masters back and they seriously sound so fucking good, @sophos34 really knocked it out of the park and made our songs louder, cleaner, warmer, better. Hire Jake rn to work on your record before he's busy working with real bands

    GLOW is out this friday (thursday night on bandcamp) and I seriously cannot wait to share it with you all
