Flowers and Sea Creatures

Flowers and Sea Creatures hail from Montreal and release their debut EP 'Test Pressing' on September 20 on Watt's Buzzin' Fly. The EP showcases four tracks. Baxter's soaring impressionistic vocals and stacked harmonies ride over partner Kosta Megalos's fuzzy autumnal chords. The crisp future-disco beats come courtesy of the EP's co-producers The Revenge (on 'At Night') and Ewan Pearson (on 'International'). The results, when added to the duo's own self-produced closing cut 'Sonic', is alternative deep danceable Balearica at its finest.
