Blaudzun’s debut Heavy Flowers set for American release in January, featuring hauntingly ethereal title track
Heavy Flowers takes only a single listen to turn listeners into fanatics. The title track alone left me speechless upon first hearing its shifting melodies of stark brutal richness coupled with Johannes Sigmond’s peerless vocals. The album, to be released on the 15th of January, seems poised to introduce the Holland-based indie-folk songwriter to the wider American audience he richly deserves. Based on the live performance below, expect Blaudzun to be the toast of SXSW when he performs there in March.
