The Zephyrs – Bright Yellow Flowers On A Dark Double Bed (CD Review)

The Zephyrs have retained their style – a blurred line between shoegazing, alt.country and Nick Drake – to create another fine album of gorgeously mellowed and ethereal sounds. There is more of an accessible feel to this album that comes from a move slightly out of the area of folkie soundscapes and expansive dramatics. The other-worldliness and theatricality that remains enhances the gentleness of the tracks and lends a rich vibrancy to the sound.

‘Bright Yellow Flowers On A Dark Double Bed’ is an album of the night, something to warm you and render serene wherever you happen to be. It is very easy, and recommended, to wallow in the waves of guitars, strings and undulating rhythms. You can catch the Zephyrs playing in Scotland in August and September and in Spain at the XI Festival Internacional de Benicássim (4-7th August).
