Premiere: Flowers – Young

Tender, beautiful songwriting...

Sometimes these things take time.

But, then again, sometimes they don't. Flowers only formed a little over a year ago, but already they've snagged a record deal – with Fortuna POP! – and have released a golden debut single.

Hooking up with Bernard Butler, the trio set about sanding down some of their sharp, DIY edges into pure, gossamer pop.

Reminiscent of Cocteau Twins and their splendid cathedral of sound, the songcraft is steeped in indie lore, in a charming, self-effacing way of translating emotion into sound.

Titled 'Do What You Want To, It's What You Should Do', the band's debut album is due to emerge later this year. Ahead of this, Clash can premiere new track 'Young' and it's a simply wonderful slice of deeply British pop music.

All languid guitars, velvet melancholy and perfect execution, you can stream it below:
