Belgian five-piece Black Flower is releasing a new album called ‘Future Flora’, on 12th April via Sdban Ultra.
It follows their critically acclaimed second album ‘Artifacts’ which was also released by Sdban Ultra in 2017.
‘Future Flora’ is a metaphor for the importance of feeding and watering powerful and revolutionary ideas and initiatives that can save our world. You can compare it with plants that fight between the paving stones of the city for their future. These “urban warriors” need water to survive and grow. Their future and ours depends entirely on how we look at the plant world”, says bandleader Nathan Daems.
The albums find the band dabbling in sounds from Africa, Romania, and Ethiopia. Daems developed his arrangements were Western, Oriental and Ethiopian scales and chords are fused to create a real mix of traditional instrumentation and modern electrical vibrations.
Streaming below is the lead single ‘Hora de Aksum’ which combines modern western rhythms with doses of Balkan eccentricities.
We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album. For now, though, check out ‘Hora de Aksum’ and enjoy!
