Kettleflower is a collaboration between producer-engineer Mike Purcell and singer-songwriter Patrick Rickelton. Together, the Nashville duo craft guitars-meet-synth indie/alternative sound and last year, they released their debut EP Warning Bells.
Following up that EP is new single ‘Now We Acquiesce’, the pair’s first outing in 2018. A soft, melodic indie/synthpop adventure accompanied by an enchanting blend of shimmering synths, flourishes of electronics and a hushed vocal. At points both melancholic and hopeful, it conveys a sense of strength in fragility and imbued with an understated burning possitivity. A magnificent, shimmering indie-electronic delight. The pair have followed it with ‘Dreaming’; a heavenly blend of tranquil, hazy atmospherics. It is simply beautiful and at the hazard of stating the obvious, it glides elegantly by with a beguiling, dreamlike aura.
You’ll be all the better for letting this pair into you life, guaranteed!
