Slow Spirit – “Moonflower”

“Moonflower” is a beautiful track released today by Slow Spirit, off the band’s upcoming sophomore album Nowhere No One Knows Where to Find You, out on May 8th. Natalie Bohrn’s entrancing vocals build alongside a swelling synth tone, rising alongside an expanded bass line past the one-minute mark. The track’s initial melodic undercurrent is reminiscent of Radiohead’s “Daydreaming,” producing a similar dream-like state in terms of soundscape. Big Thief is also a fine reference point, for the track’s ability to develop into a hypnotic array of guitars and warming vocals in the second half. Atmospheric and wonderfully trippy, “Moonflower” has me seriously anticipating the album release next week.

“Moonflower” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.
