Flowerpot Records

4.5/5 stars

Awash in a lush, soothing atmosphere, Flower Crown’s debut LP is an utterly gorgeous piece. The project is the work of two Erie natives, Richie Colosimo — frontman of the (currently dormant) indie band Frame and Mantle — and Aaron Mook, who (full disclosure) is himself also a writer for this very publication. The deftness with which the duo navigate the language of the dream pop and shoegaze genres is impressive ­— ably approaching the sounds of storied veterans like Slowdive. The tone remains relatively consistent over the listening experience, with vocals and guitars drenched with a wet mix of delay and reverb effects. The nine track, 32-minute album serves as the follow up to their stunning 2016 EP, Hypnasea. In many ways this long-player is an extension of the sound they established in their initial outing, with a slight ritardando in the overall tempos (most noticeable when comparing opening tracks). The slower pace exudes a vibe that is undeniably “chill” throughout the entire record. It’s a chilling chill as well, a unique aura of beauty and relaxation at the same time.
