Night Flowers have shared their gorgeous single, ‘Cruel Wind.’ “And now you have an epitaph,” sings Sophia Pettit with grace and feeling of loss, this shimmering wide-screen song possess a yearning melody and tumbling percussion that plunges deep into your heart.
‘Cruel Wind’ comes with an ingenious accompanying video made by filmmaking duo James Doherty and Laura Whittell. the brave astronauts featured, the training, the isolation, the pressure and the fear are obstacles they must endure to realise their dream – to explore the great beyond. Night Flowers vocalist Sophia Pettit is on hand to guide them through their journey with her white coat and round-rimmed glasses. Combining green screen, archive footage and some clever visual effects, the result is something different, and filmic.
Lifted from their forthcoming debut album, Wild Notion. Which was written in various London basements and bedsits, and recorded with longtime producer Adam Jaffrey in a studio that was later bulldozed to make way for luxury flats. The windswept north-east English coast collided with stateside sunshine when US-born vocalist Sophia Pettit joined the band in their new shared hometown of London in summer 2015.
