new music: Altar Flowers – Bastard Song

Alternative pop band Altar Flowers from Manchester may only have formed in 2014 but they already have an abundance of tracks on their Soundcloud page as well as plenty of good reviews from critics comparing them to everyone from The Cure to Arcade Fire.

Their single ‘Bastard Song’ is a great mix of retro tinged synth sounds mixed with gothy undertones from the deep, plodding bass line and the languid vocal style. The chorus are fast tempoed with quick beats and bigger guitar moments while the verses flow along beautiful with fuzzy guitar notes. It is an excellent track and one that holds a lot of promise of more to come from this quartet.

The indie pop rock four piece have already got plenty of shows lined up for 2015 from Kraak Gallery in Manchester on 7th February to The Compass in Chester on 6th March. It looks set to be a big year for the band that are only just getting started by any means and they are definitely one act to keep your eye on over the next 12 months.
