UV Rays - "Flowerhead" - 2019



"But while the group just be breaking out, their new single 'Flowerhead' indicates that their larger-than-life sound could quickly carry them to enormous heights."
- The 405


Throughout the EP, these seemingly disparate sounds blend together effortlessly. On the celebratory lead single “Flowerhead,” for instance, Warner sings a huge pop chorus about being “comfortable enough with someone that you can be 100% your weirdest self in front of them,” but bookends it between restrained, elegantly winding verses and visceral blasts of staccato guitar and drums. Later, “Existential Dread,” sung by Marchetta-Wood, features intertwined guitar riffs in the vein of Television, courtesy of DeFontaine and guitarist Danny Sullivan; “Boys,” written by the full band, is a euphoric blast of unabashed pop-rock that works as a poignant foil for Warner’s biting commentary.
