Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Painted Flowers. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their music vision.
Surely we are facing a band that takes inspiration from the past. As soon as I hit the play button I felt catapulted into the 80s when people wore bell-bottoms and headbands in their long hair.
The rhythm of the new single ‘Late Night Special’ is ‘infectious’ and literally makes you want to dance. Try to imagine this song as the soundtrack of a CHiPs’ series episode … it would have been perfect!
This music makes you feel free and makes you want to travel around the streets of the city without a precise destination.
It feels like Painted Flowers spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such enviable sonic chemistry.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Late Night Special is Painted Flowers’ Single Out Now!
Fresch and Catchy!
Painted Flowers are a six piece rock n roll band from Johannesburg, South Africa comprised of Elio Moavero (Lead Vocals, harmonica), Anika Reinecke (Keys and back up vocal), Joshua Rogers (Lead guitar), Jonny Smith (Bass and back up vocals), Valentino Moavero (drums) and Ricky Chasumba (Guitar and back up vocals). They released their first single at the end of 2020 and have had a steady stream of releases since, including four music videos, two more singles and a debut EP called Walk It Loose. Their influences include The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground and more that add to their nostalgic sound. Their live shows are full of energy, hot sauce and good ‘ol foot stomping rock n roll.
