'So Far The Star' is another synth heavy delight that is crisp and airy yet balanced by heavy
hearted vocals and a deeply percolating sense of machine made menace that always threatens but never fully rears its head. On the flip, the filmic theme of Flowers & Sea Creatures' music is echoed in the title of 'Alternate Endings'. This is a beatless exercise in synth ambiance that allows the vocals to float in the midst of minor piano keys and swathes of echo. It is truly arresting and reflective music. Finally, 'Citadel' drops with an equally epic and dramatic feel born of shuffling percussion and long tailed pads that create a haunting ambiance with real feeling. There is plenty of art and craft in these tracks, which are far more emotive and resonant than your average club fair. On the evidence of this EP, surely 2014 will belong to the talented pair that is Flowers & Sea Creatures.
