Interview & Presentation Flowers in Syrup
We proudly present you a short interview and band presentation:
Where are you from and what’s the origin of your band/artist name?
We're from southern Germany (Stuttgart area).
The bandname derives from a longdrink. We know what kind of impression this might make, but we just liked the sound of the words: Flowers in Syrup.
Introduce shortly your band members and history
Tino: used to play in Indie- and Britrock bands, decided that it was time to start something new and different
Tobi: Metalcore bassplayer who just happened to fill in the perfect spot after a long chain of events.
Nico: Drummer in various Instrumental- and Metalbands. Tino and him founded the project in 2013.
After the Emergenza band contest, change of Lineup (Felix leaving and Tobi taking his place) and recording the first 2 EP's (Getting Closer was out in 2016, SkyDivers will be coming out in May 2017) We are willing to play at any place.
What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Who are your major influences?
Somewhere between Post- Rock, Alternative and Grunge. It's all the violence from our heavy rhythm section paired with the clear and airy guitar- tone and voice.
Our influences derive from a lot of different genres. Here are a few artists to give you an idea:
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Oasis, Sigur Ros, Radiohead, La dispute, björk, Dredg, The Cure, Porcupine Tree
What are the main themes or topics for your songs?
Telling stories is our top priority. When you listen to our Songs, we want you to be able to immerse yourself in the scenerio we created through various effects and dynamic sounds.
The stories vary: It can be a personal matter consisting of good old love lyrics or it can be about nature; for example mountains and open waters.
