The Ramona Flowers

Their music mixes electronica, rock, indie, singer Steve Bird’s incredible falsetto and a lot of emotion. It can sometimes seem as if bands are trying to stand out from the crowd by being the loudest, but The Ramona Flowers show that sometimes a gentler sound can shout loudest of all.

“That wasn’t our intention,” admits Steve Bird, with the candour of his songwriting. “We have got some upbeat tunes, but we’ve got an emotional side which is where those gentler moments come from. We seem to be quite good at that.” Other people think so, such as Clash magazine, who made the beautifully haunting Lust And Lies single Track of the Month. The Ramona Flowers wowed audiences on the Bastille and Bombay Bicycle Club tours, Alt-J, Everything Everything, Hot Chip and Ladytron have remixed them and NME describe the band’s textural sound as one that could have feasibly fitted on Radiohead’s Kid A.” while The Guardian liken their “sweetly sung emotional indie” to that of The Temper Traps.
