Flying Potion – “Constrictor”


Chicago artist Flying Potion just released a self-titled debut album with captivating appeal. A constant throughout is emphasis on pedal steel guitar techniques, with the twangy presence providing a melodic backbone to Flying Potion’s very melodic and atmospheric songwriting. The innovative pedal steel techniques combine with the quality songwriting to result in an album with ample replay value.

Among the album’s highlights, “Constrictor” is a fantastic track with psychedelic leanings. The twangy guitars lead into a string-laden hook around the one-minute mark, with the lead vocals pursuing a more rousing feel punctuated by psych-friendly vocal reflections.
