Night Flowers have dished up numerous doses of luminous dream-pop – such as ‘Amy’, ‘Chaser’ and ‘Sleep’ – and, more recently, the band have been touring with the likes of Japanese Breakfast and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
Now they’re gearing up to release their debut album later this year (hurrah!) and are back with a brand new single, ‘Losing The Light’. It sees them at their best, combining jangly, slightly fuzzed out melodies and buoyant, clashing percussion with a soaring hook featuring waves of sparkling. luscious synths. Vocalist Sophia Pettit just puts the cherry on the cake, adding emotional weight to the breezy foundations. They haven’t lost any of their light.
The single is also accompanied by a video directed by their long-time collaborator and friend Darren Topliss. In it, Sophia goes on a slow-motion adventure, travelling around the city with innocent abandon and freedom through roller skating, sliding down railings, jumping in puddles and even doing a spot of washing. Speaking of the clip, the band say that it’s “a video that celebrates the importance of living in the moment”.
Night Flowers are set to step into the limelight in London on 27th April, when they play at The Lexington.
