Wildflowers by The Pretty Flowers

In the vast landscape of indie rock, The Pretty Flowers have always stood out with their unique blend of heartfelt lyricism and hook-laden melodies. With “Wildflowers,” the third single from their sophomore album, A Company Sleeve, they continue to solidify their reputation as one of the genre’s most promising acts.

“Wildflowers” is a poignant reflection on the dichotomy of modern life, where the corporate grind often overshadows one’s artistic pursuits. The song’s lyrics delve deep into the challenges of maintaining creativity and passion amidst the monotony of a 9-to-5 job. It’s a sentiment that resonates with many, especially in a world where the hustle culture often leaves little room for personal expression.

The track showcases the band’s signature sound, which is a delightful amalgamation of influences ranging from Guided By Voices to Teenage Fanclub. Noah Green’s vocals are both raw and melodic, perfectly capturing the song’s underlying emotions. Jake Gideon’s guitar work, always a highlight in The Pretty Flowers’ songs, adds depth and texture to the track, while Sam Tiger’s bass lines and Sean Johnson’s drumming provide a solid rhythmic foundation.

The production, helmed by band member Jake Gideon and engineered by the renowned Adam Lasus, is crisp and allows each instrument to shine without overshadowing the others. The mastering by Matthew Barnhart adds the finishing touch, ensuring that “Wildflowers” is both radio-ready and perfect for those introspective late-night listens.

The Pretty Flowers’ journey from their debut album, Why Trains Crash, to their latest offering has been one of growth and evolution. Critics and fans alike have lauded their ability to craft songs that are both catchy and meaningful. The Big Takeover magazine’s comparison of the band to the likes of early Weezer and Wilco is apt, and “Wildflowers” is a testament to their songwriting prowess.

As 2023 sees the band touring the west coast with The Roxies and releasing their new album under Double Helix Records, it’s evident that The Pretty Flowers are on an upward trajectory. And if “Wildflowers” is any indication, they’re just getting started.

For those looking to immerse themselves in the world of The Pretty Flowers, A Company Sleeve is available for order on limited edition vinyl on their Bandcamp page. It’s a collection that promises a musical journey worth embarking on, with “Wildflowers” being one of its many highlights.
