Background/Info: Such Beautiful Flowers is a Belgian solo-project driven by Donny Woestenborghs. He was previously involved with a Hard-Core formation and reconverted himself into Electronic music. This debut EP features four songs that were released a while ago now (at the end of 2019).
Content: The opening song reveals a kind of Indie-Pop approach featuring an extra poppy chorus. The title song is somewhat harder and darker, but still melodic and danceable. The vocals are getting a bit harder as well. Both songs left feel a bit like the B-side of this work. They sound softer although “Purest Light/Blackest Curse” is driven by a menacing bass line.
+ + + : Four songs are not that much to get a real idea about this band’s potential. But we get 4 songs, which I always prefer instead of a title track, numerous remixes and a poorly inspired B-side cut. The title song reveals a strong potential; a refreshing Electro-Wave cut with some Indie touch on top. I like this harder and rougher exposure, which also comes through in the production of the vocals.
– – – : Both last songs are less inspired and reveal some aspects to improve.
Conclusion: Such A Beautiful Flowers has realized an honest debut-work. You can hear there’s potential hiding inside this artist so let’s wait for the next step(s).
Best songs: “Neon Gloom”, “In The Wake Of Life”.
