Les Fleurs du Mal – Concrete Ravings

19 Aug


Les Fleurs du Mal is a Swedish dark/new wave band formed back in 2009 by Alex and August Grim. Though, they don’t percieve dark music the Scandinavian or the central European way. They follow the british heritage, emphasising the melodies rather than the compositions’ atmosphere. In terms of lyrics, you’ll vainly search for fallen angels, broken hearts and chilly forests; they prefer to talk about politics and personal deadlocks and they proudly gain a place next to the Astronauts and the Chameleons.

Concrete Ravings” is their first full length attempt after one ep and two digital maxi singles all by Malicious Release. Eleven tunes that take you back to pure guitar melodies and strong and steady basslines with straight and raw vocals bared from tenor lines and echoes.

No, it’s not a trip with your time machine. It is rather a reminder that positive punk is alive and kicking. Enjoy!
