Single Review – High Fantasy by Flower Crown (2019) (Crafted Sounds)

After a 2 year hiatus since their shimmering Glow album, Pittsburgh five-piece Flower Crown, re-surfaced with the critically acclaimed Sundries album in May of this year. Thankfully they have chosen to avoid a similar lengthy impasse by releasing this superb single.

Conquering the sort of salacious chiming jangle that all male dream-pop acts tend to prescribe to and layering pre Screamedelica Primal Scream baggy vocals into the mix, Flower Crown / High Fantasy offer the perfect antidote to any feeling that dream-pop as a genre can become too sacharrine sweet at times.

Let’s hope the release of the single means that there is more in their release pipeline.
