Skeleton Flower Band
ALBUM RELEASED NATIONALLY SEPTEMBER 27th!!!!
Skeleton Flower’s “debut” album is a musical collection filled with gritty honesty, wild imagination, a generous sense of humor, and unleashed artistic expression. While Skeleton Flower is a brand new band, it grew out of the multi-media performance company Degenerate Art Ensemble. Inspiration from the album came from the creation of a new stage performance that is a semi-autobiographical exploration of a creative person’s struggle with identity, depression and the awakening of personal power. The work balances compelling supernatural narratives along with exploring how, through creativity, one is able to not only survive, but also share the fruits of their imagination with others and transform oneself in the process. It is vibrant with stylistic details and unexpected musical delights, using humor and imagination.
“There isn’t a squandered note in Skeleton Flower’s kaleidoscopic self-titled debut. Singer Haruko Crow Nishimura’s exuberance spills as her bandmates excel in sharp turns and busy chorale exclamations. Sewn from similar, asymmetric fabric of Deerhoof, vocal stitching of Bjork and Joanna Newsom’s child-like incantations, Nishimura and writing partner/guitarist Joshua Kohl, collect from a wild stock of supernova-like vision.Skeleton Flower is a testament of brevity quilted from dazzling creativity and personal authority. Its best parts are confident strides toward the fringe and shadows. The long-standing duo of Nishimura and Kohl reflect brightest as they dare to continue to explore.”
