Triple Ds presents:
LP RELEASE SHOW
Fake Flowers | Art School Jocks
- DAY OF SHOW
Ultimately, however, genres are of little import--the band themselves prefer the term “nerve pop” to describe their music. The phrase comprises the frenetic energy of the late 70s new wavers and Bob Dylan’s shaky foot circa 1965. Sonically, they resemble equal parts “Chairs Missing”-period Wire and early Stereolab. Lyrically, they reside somewhere in the “new domestic” school.
Live shows, played to the absolute tipping point, express a sense of urgency, affectation, and a blur of electric noise. Songs refuse cadence naturally and the band will not stop moving.
They released their debut record "Similar Phantoms" in October 2014 and since have completed work on their sophomore album to be released soon. Other items include 2 7"s, 3 cassette releases, and assorted odds and ends. They tour often.
Atlanta, Georgia is their home.
Fake Flowers plays lush, propulsive pop songs, combining elements of shoegaze, post-punk, surf, and psychedelia. With guitars both fuzzy and jangly, a grooving rhythm section, and layers of dreamy vocal harmonies, the band could easily fall into late 80's/early 90's college-radio rotation, but emphatically and refreshingly retools the styles of its forebears.
