The Ramona Flowers anthemic new single 'Brighter', out September 2nd on burgeoning label Distiller Records mixes electronica, rock and indie resulting in a track that's as infectious as it is dramatically powerful. The 'Brighter' remix package will include reworks from Everything Everything and electronic-folk outfit Mt. Wolf.
Bristol based The Ramona Flowers, whose previous singles include the emotional 'Lust and Lies' have been praised for their rawness but simultaneously their courage to experiment with a surprising number of styles. Music sympatico Andy Barlow of Manchester electronica duo Lamb immediately heard the potential in the band's early demos and has since taken on production duties for their forthcoming full length.
The Ramona Flowers wowed audiences on the recent Bastille tour; Hot Chip and Ladytron have remixed them, and NME describe the band's textural sound as "a wholly different beast, and one that could have feasibly fitted on Radiohead's Kid A."
On 'Brighter', singer Steve Bird has never been in better command of his falsetto, and he's got monster hooks and melodies in his bottle of tricks. 'Brighter' is the sound of a band utterly on form and completely on top of their game - it's sharp, emotive, massive.
After support shows with Bastille, MS MR and Lamb, The Ramona Flowers are ready for their own headline tour, which will be announced shortly. In the meantime you can catch the band this summer as they perform on the main stages at Wilderness and Leefest festivals.
