TUNE The Ramona Flowers - Lust and Lies
There’s more to Bristol than ear splitting drum’n’bass as electro-minded indie outfit The Ramona Flowers are about to show you.
The Bristol based five piece meld electronics with guitars – as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Phoenix have done before them – and with a mutual love of Lamb, Bloc Party and Baths, are all set to tackle the new music coalface.
After meeting at university and forming a three-piece, Dave (keyboards), Wayne (bass) and Sam (guitar), brought in vocalist Steve and drummer Ed to add the final piece to the puzzle. They’ve been working at it ever since.
The Ramona Flowers are currently on a massive 17 date tour of the UK with Bastille to coincide with the release of the band’s tripped-out new EP ‘Lust and Lies’, which is out April 29th on Distiller Records and which has been cut and spliced by both Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and Ladytron.
The NME have said ‘Lust and Lies’ is “a wholly different beast, and one that could feasibly have slotted in nicely anywhere on Radiohead's ‘Kid A” and with its twisted guitar-meets-electronics, we would hasten to agree.
