One of the strengths of this offering is the variation of sensations and writing throughout. It is impossible to get bored listening from start to end. The second song ‘Alexandria’ brings out the fierce, rhythmically armed side of the band. This buoyant number is designed to get you up on the dance floor, with stimulating horn melodies and unabashed organ chords, set against funky drum patterns. Artifacts closes with ‘Lunar Eclipse’.

The reed-infused breathiness conjures images of wind blowing through uninhabited landscapes ready for exploration. As if leaving you on a cliff-hanger, this is where your musical exploration sadly ends. The discordant key stabs encourage visions of rugged lunar surfaces as you wonder what lies behind.  Maybe they’ll reveal more on their next album.

Black Flower are a band that on first listening may sound abstract and hard to digest, but upon further plays take you into a dreamlike exploration of illusory soundscapes.  Full of personality and character, this is an assemblage of innovative minds that master a brand new art piece which truly reflects our multifarious environment. – Rhythm Passport
