Night Flowers burst into the opening track of this self-titled EP with a wibbly melody and wall of guitars that scream My Bloody Valentine excess, but quickly rein themselves in for a moody bit of dreampop which goes a bit epic later on with big ringing guitar chords and sweeping strings. Still pretty strong in a Lush meets Ride kind of way but not the MBV fireworks the intro promised. What's clear, though, is that this is a band who are united by a love for early '90s indie pop. Second track 'Embers' has a sad nostalgic warmth that brings to mind Teenage Fanclub or Guided By Voices, but with epic late '90s production.
Over on the other side things get wistfuller still on 'Neverlands', a dewy-eyed bit of coffee table indie soul full of slinky liquid guitars and breathy ooh-oohs. In the start it's reminding me of the Lightning Seeds but then there's some triumphant Smashing Pumpkins guitars towards the end. Finally 'Summer Rain' plays us out with an uplifting and shrill guitar hook in the chorus and hushed verses. I think I like this song the best out of the lot, it's got a real naive charm to it like the first couple of Beezewax albums. Considering the band have only been together a year this is a solid debut!
