Flowers: Flat Tired Chuck

Extremely bold and distressingly heavy, Flat Tired Chuck is the first and very much impressive single off the forthcoming, appropriately titled LP, Doom City, by Dutch heavy rock duo, Flowers.

Over four minutes of magnificent, stoner rocking, doom-laden psychedelia, in the vein of Electric Wizard, Acid King and Sleep, the track raises the expectations for the coming album very high, and astonishes through its weightiness, those gutty, memorable riffs, and a fervent vocal delivery.

Doom City is a fully realized concept album which tells the story of a decaying and crumbling city, and every song on it delineates a different aspect of the broken-down place. "The city is a metaphor for the patriarchy and the binary gender system," reveal the band in a statement. "It’s unsustainable, it’s struggling to survive, it has to perish to make place for a new way of life."

Flowers are Roos Pollmann and Judith van Oostrum. The album was recorded and mixed by Rasmus Bredvig at Tapetown Studios, and mastered by Emil Thomsen.
