The push/pull between Britain and the United States has resulted in some wonderful musical tension.
The Anglophile side of the American character has come to the fore across the past decade, with Brooklyn types such as Vivian Girls and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart spearheading an indie pop resurgence.
Now it seems as though the UK is fighting back. A plethora of groups across the country are busy updating that classic C86 sound, with Night Flowers being next in line.
Snapped up by influential tastemakers Dirty Bingo, the London (via Humberside) group are set to release their debut EP on April 7th.
Stripped from the new EP, 'Embers' is a wonderful, shimmering document of youthful promise coming into fruition. The twin boy/girl vocals of Greg and Hester Ullyart are a beautiful touch, with 'Embers' containing a hazy, nostalgic atmosphere.
Check it out now.
