"The third and most accessible album by icelandic experimental pop miracle Sin Fang was ecorded & produced by Alex Somers (producer of Sigur Rós & Jónsi). Following his Half Dreams EP, Flowers is an album that nevertheless opens with a lot of collective chanting, a sense of deep rootedness, togetherness, unity, shared experience: "We were young boys, smoking in the woods, I showed you how", are the first words Sin Fang scatters across the less-beaten tracks, only to leapfrog across the lawn and switch on the stage lights for his own take of 'big' pop. A song like "What's Wrong With Your Eyes" would indeed sound infinitely awesome in a stadium setting - it's so massive, so outspokenly pop, when the beat meets layered vocals and the piano comes in just at the right moments. Sin Fang obviously learned how to cultivate the heaviest crops of the pops: indie-rooted but vast, quirky at times but crystal-clearly aiming at the stars in other places, there's more tracks with huge sing-along gestures, more of that well-rounded surround experience now stripped of any insecurities. This is a bold statement that's a million miles away from cliché Icelandic indie stuff." (label info)
