The Flowers – You Don’t Say!

Quite honestly, I only discovered upcoming Sydney band The Flowers recently. When I wrote about their collaboration with Sarah Wolfe on the track 100 Times, to be precise. It turned out The Flowers front woman Agnes O’Dwyer, a.k.a. Aggy, is Wolfe’s long-time best friend. However, while 100 Times was a full on pop song, her own band is more of a rock outfit. And a damn fine one, judging from their available tunes so far.

You Don’t Say! is The Flowers’ new single. Produced by Peter Holz (Vance Joy, Peking Duk), it fuses pop-punk sensibilities with a radiant indie presence. Lyrically, it carries a self-love message. As O’Dwyer puts it: “You Don’t Say! is about struggling with body image. It’s essentially me yelling cause I’m kinda mad about how much it has ruined my life.”  She adds: “Some of us are our own worst critics. This song is about striking back against self doubt and deciding the love yourself a little more. I don’t want to make self love sound easy, or make it seem like I’ve got it all figured out. The song talks more about taking small steps.”

The Flowers are a band about to bloom. I’m eagerly awaiting the debut EP they’re currently working on.
