Les Techno – “Flowers For Dystopia”

Impressing with many tracks over the years, from “Trophy Wife” to “Edge of the World,” Les Techno continues to succeed with a creative vein of rock with meaningful lyrical messaging. “Flowers for Dystopia” conjures ’80s nostalgia with its smooth bass line and guitar licks, as vocals passionately project a reflective feel. Lyrically, the track serves as a reaction to being under lockdown for the past several months. The NYC-based artist explains: “One night, in a dream, I imagined walking out on a stage in some dingy East Village club, with the band playing this riff. I approach the mic and, like a wizard’s incantation, call out “Objects!, Objects!”. I woke up in the middle of the night, ran down into his studio and started recording it.”

“Flowers For Dystopia” and other memorable tracks released in May can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.
