After the success of debut single ‘Fresh Air’, Flowvers are back with their subsequent single ‘Long Way Home’.
The song immediately starts with a single guitar belting out the chord pattern, similar to debut “Fresh Air”, overlayed with the bright, 80s-influenced sound Flowvers have become known for, instantly letting you know it’s another tune you can bop along to. However, the song soon slows down to introduce the first line of “Locked out without a key” before speeding back up.
This small change in tempo initiates the deeper, personal meaning behind the lyrics of the song which ultimately contrasts with the happy, sweet melody accompanying them.
Lines such as “We’ll be ourselves now we’re alone” give a more personal twist to this song as lead singer Matisse pours his emotions out to those listening. This song definitely has more of an emotional connection than the debut single, with a sadder meaning behind it.
Matisse says the idea behind the song stemmed from a past friendship where they were always so different around different groups of people. The song is about how people change when they’re around different people, and it’s put in the context of a twisted relationship where two people can’t understand who they actually are.
“TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME”
Yet another hit, alongside the upcoming headline set at Victorious Festival, proves that Flowvers are definitely one to keep an eye on, and destined for big things.
