Bay Area Rockers, Crooked Flower, take listeners through a series of their inner experiences over a psychedelic instrumental journey throughout their latest EP release, ‘Darkness and Light’.
Kicking off with the first track, “Moving On”, Crooked Flower begins with a moody dose of instrumentals that leads into hypnotic vocals from Angelina Dang that carry a sultry and lustful touch that creates the perfect song to heighten the intensity between two lovers. The second track, “Tunnel Of Light”, lyrically throws away a subsconscious web of defense when it comes to defending another individual who once served as a source of love as instrumentals that mimic the tranquility throughout “Aqueous Transmission” by Incubus stand out as an album highlight.
“Boyfriend” is the third track that mimics The Cranberries and slows it down into an acoustic lyrical spill highlighting the glory days of a relationship that is long over as Angelina attempts to seek closure when it comes to what was and simply no longer is. Closing out with “Bells of Brixton”, Crooked Flower stir into the hearts of listeners over a slow and smooth atmospheric opening that creates the feeling of being immersed within an enlightening exploration of self that is enveloping in the most constructive way. Notably, Crooked Flower ends the nearly twelve-minute track with a sound that is similar to The Police.
Fusing modern instrumental sensibilities with atmospherics that send listeners down the rabbit hole of their own lives, Crooked Flower ignite an array of colors within throughout ‘Darkness and Light’.
