The Untitled Heart with With Flowers - An Interview

Dreampop atmosférico, psicodélico, melancólico e por vezes soturno, este é o With Flowers.

The Untitled Heart é o mais recente EP, após uma série de singles, todos contemplando paisagens distantes sob o espectro da rural psychedelia, termo criado pelo Flying Saucer Attack em seu primeiro álbum. 

Para momentos de introspecção total.

***** Interview with With Flowers *****

Q. When did With Flowers start? Tell us about the history...
With Flowers began back in 2014 as a solo recording project of mine. I still write everything and record everything alone, but have a full band whom I rehearse with regularly and play with live. The band name started with a saying I thought up, If you go to a funeral you show up with flowers, when you go to prom or a dance you show up with flowers, if you want to say you're sorry you show up with flowers... Everything with flowers.

Q: Who are your influences?
Little Richard, PJ Harvey, Trent Reznor, Ryan Adams, Sylvia Plath, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg

Q. How do you feel playing live?
One word.....Emotional.

Q. How do you describe With Flowers sounds?

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ? Well let's just say misery loves company.. Something bad happened in my life I locked myself in my room for three days with only water ,fruit and nuts and didn't leave till it was finished. Let's just say these songs mean a lot to me and I can only hope maybe one day they will me something to someone else.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Beliefs, cold showers, psychic teens, soft kill, tropic of cancer, jaws

Be a reflection of who you are on the inside, always be true to yourself, don't forget your own importance and do one thing a day that makes you happy.
